This roadway improvement project was performed for Holder Construction and supported the construction of the new City Center for the city of Sandy Springs. Reeves Young’s scope included the demolition of existing roadways and corresponding signalization at two intersections. Services included 250 LF of 36” jack and bore utility installation; 3,300 LF of 18” reinforced concrete pipe; 1,000 LF of 12” ductile iron pipe water main; 9,000 LF of curb and gutter; and 27,000 SY of asphalt paving. The project also contained 1.2 miles of walking trails and paths.
Reeves Young was awarded multiple work scopes for this highly technical project for the Holder, Hunt, Russell, Moody joint venture in charge of building Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The project included grading the 40-acre site, which required removing 200,000 CY of soil, equaling 100 dump trucks a day. It also required creating internal access roads; placement of 294,000 SF of soil cement for multiple crane pads; demolition of the existing roadway bridge and retaining wall; installation of water, sewer and utility lines; and installation of sitework, utilities, and traffic signals to support the new entrance road. Reeves Young also performed as Prime Contractor for the installation of a 268,000 CF underground cast-in-place stormwater detention vault.
Reeves Young provided improvements to community pedestrian access including 6,270 SY of sidewalk, 42,067 SY of mill and overlay, and 10,257 LF of curb and gutter along Lake Hearn Drive and Parkside Place. The scope also included moving the curb line 4 feet so existing sidewalks on the other side of the street could be widened from 4 feet to 6 feet. Seating benches, lighting, and trash receptacles were installed along the sidewalks. Special brick paving was utilized to increase aesthetic appeal. Two raised intersections were also created to mitigate excessive vehicular speed along Lake Hearn Drive. ADA ramps, pedestrian signalization, and crosswalks were also added.
