Work on sewer lines to force lane closures | Print |

In anticipation of the Big Creek Water Reclamation Facility expansion project, additional stretches of roadway in Sandy Springs will have limited lane access beginning Monday, September 16, 2019. The work on two additional phases of the Cobb Diversion Line project are slated to start next week forcing lane closures along Northridge Parkway and Dunwoody Place.   As part of that project, Fulton County contractor John D. Stephens Inc. began constructing a new sewer main through Sandy Springs that will connect a pump station in Roswell to facilities in Cobb County.    

Motorists should be prepared for eastbound lanes of Northridge Parkway from 400 Northridge to Dunwoody Place to be shut down. Along Dunwoody Place, northbound lanes from Northridge Parkway to Roswell Road will be closed to allow the work to proceed. Construction is expected to continue through the fall with an expected conclusion date in November, 2019 and will involve daily lane closures with flagmen. Electronic message boards will be in place to alert citizens of the work and possible traffic impacts.    
 
Upon completion, this new sewer main will divert up to 10 million gallons of wastewater per day to Cobb County for treatment in anticipation of the Big Creek Water Reclamation Facility nearing its capacity by 2020. This project includes the construction of about seven miles of sewer main within Sandy Springs and Roswell as well as Cobb County. The project also includes construction of a new pump station. A project to expand the Big Creek facility is currently underway and expected to be completed in three to four years.
