About This Project
The Big Idea: Beautify the corridor from I-520 at Sand Bar Ferry Road between East Boundary and East Cedar Street
Time: June 2015 through April 2016 to complete Phase I
Details: This is a very important corridor for visitors arriving from South Carolina and the Low Country areas via I-520 (Bobby Jones Expressway) to Augusta. Phase I construction started in 2015 and ended April 2016.Phase I included planting, drainage and irrigation of the triangular island at Broad Street and Sand Bar Ferry Road with trees, shrubs and sod. The center medians and shoulders between I-520 and East Boundary are being maintained – mowed and edged – as well.Of special interest, during construction, sidewalks were discovered under 4-6 inches of dirt and weeds on the shoulders of Sand Bar Ferry Road. Those areas were all excavated during construction to expose the sidewalks.
Progress: Phase I completed.
