Looks like the Oakhurst Streetscape Improvements are finally ready to get underway.
The Decatur City Commission is set to vote tonight to accept the low bid from Construction Management & Engineering Services of Norcross to make the long time coming Oakhurst Streetscape Improvements. (They’ve been in progress so long that the project name requires capitalization!)
The project is bid out at $1.4 million, according to a letter from Asst. City Manager Hugh Saxon, with a project budget of a little over $2 million. A bit more than half of the funding will come from GDOT’s Transportation Enhancement program and the rest will come from the city’s bond project funds.
According to Mr. Saxon, the project will include…
- New sidewalks
- Street trees
- Street furniture
- relocation of the existing parking area and a modest expansion of Harmony Park
- a rain garden
- drainage improvements
- milling and repaving for Oakhurst commercial district
The project is projected to take 12 months to complete
