Marietta Street Streetscape Update

via Jennifer Ball, Vice President, Planning and Economic Development, Central Atlanta Progress

While it may seem like the Marietta Street Streetscape project is complete, a few items remain to be done.  In order to achieve 100% completion, you will see a good bit of work during the next two weeks that I wanted to make you aware of.  Please share this notice with your teams, colleagues and neighbors who need to know.
 
Beginning Monday, November 12th

·         Pavement patch and repair – notably near Broad Street
·         Pavement striping – throughout the corridor including some lines to demarcate loading zones and future curbside parking on the northside of the street
·         Landscaping
·         Modular newspaper rack installation

Beginning Monday, November 19th

·         Pressure Washing – All of the sidewalks along the corridor will be pressure washed as the final step in the project. This could require ‘rolling’ closures of small areas of the sidewalk.  Also, while all due care will be taken to avoid it, there is a possibility of minimal water intrusion into buildings at unsealed locations.  The pressure washing contractor will provide advance notice to front desk and security staff as they begin work in an area.

Street Repaving on Marietta Street

Posted by Susan Roe | Street Closure | Wednesday, April 4, 2012 9:32 pm

Beginning Monday, April 9th pavement work will be done at night along Marietta Street between Cone Street and Peachtree Street.  Beginning each night at 8:00 pm existing pavement milling, then re-paving and then striping (one after the other along the corridor) will be done overnight to avoid traffic impacts.  Extra effort will be taken to ensure the work is conducted as quietly as possible.  Due to working at night, pavement work in this area can be completed on an accelerated schedule and should take only 1 week to complete (if the weather cooperates.)

Please share this notice with your colleagues, tenants and neighbors to help spread the word.
