The City Commission has awarded the contract for construction of Phase V of the Downtown Decatur Streetscape Improvements to the low bidder, GS Construction of Lawrenceville. Construction is expected to start in February.

The project will provide new streetscape improvements in the following areas:

East Trinity Place:          

  • South side only between North McDonough Street and Church Street.
  • Both sides between Church Street and Decatur Fire Station No. 1.

Church Street:      

  • Both sides between East Howard Avenue and East Trinity Place.

The work includes new sidewalks, street trees, lighting and street furniture. When the project is near completion, both streets will be milled and resurfaced.

Depending on the weather, the project will take 9 – 12 months. While there will be some inconvenience throughout construction, access to businesses is to be maintained throughout the project, except for short periods when a sidewalk or driveway is being removed or replaced. The city will have an on-site project manager to answer questions, help with construction issues and provide information about the project.

We appreciate everyone’s patience in finally getting this project started and look forward to a productive 2015.
