In November 2003 Fulton County submitted an application requesting Transportation Enhancement (TE) funds for a Crabapple Streetscape Phase II project. The county received a TE grant through Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) in 2004 for $500,000 in construction federal funds with a required local match of at least twenty percent. The project was transferred to the City when local match funding was committed.
As part of the transfer of the project, the City submitted a revised application for the proposed Crabapple Area TE project in June 2011. GDOT received approval of the application by the Congressional District 6 State Transportation Board Member and issued a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on May 15, 2012. The MOU was executed by GDOT on July 3, 2013. The project should be ready to bid for construction within two years of the MOU.
Concept phase is complete and the project has a GDOT Approved Concept Report.
The Draft Preliminary Plans (30 MB) are currently under development.
A Public Information Open House was held on Thursday, November 14, 2013 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Crabapple Government Center Court Room. The information provided at the meeting includes:
Conceptual Master Plan (6.7 MB)
Mayfield Rd Enlargement (4.85 MB)
Character Images (6.96 MB)
The project selected as part of the city’s revised application includes sidewalk and other streetscape elements along both sides of Mayfield Road. These improvements are in line with the Crabapple Visioning Study, the Milton Comprehensive Transportation Plan, and planned transportation related projects in the area including Safe Routes to School and Intersection Improvements.
This project consists of public involvement, concept development, preliminary/final design construction plans, and right-of-way plans for streetscape improvements.
The projected preliminary schedule includes final design and right of way beginning spring 2015 and beginning construction spring 2016 with the project to be completed early 2017.
