LONG Sponsors and Plays at AGL Charity Golf Tournament

LONG recently had the privilege of participating in and sponsoring the annual Atlanta Gas Light Charity Golf Tournament at the Country Club of the South.

We were blessed to dodge the rain as Atlanta Gas Light employees, volunteers and partners collaborated to raise $125,597 for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (Children’s), one of the nation’s premier pediatric medical facilities. This year’s contribution brings AGL’s total to $350,000 in Children’s funding over the last four years.

LONG is proud to support this Charity, as the event provides the funding needed to continue the research, training and innovation on which Children’s has built its reputation.

Atlanta’s Westside Park Makes Its Debut

After fifteen years of planning and construction, Atlanta’s largest park is finally making its debut today. Locals will gather with Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms for the official ribbon cutting and grand opening of Westside Park Phase I.

LONG is proud to have provided civil site design for this project, as well as surveying services. The $26.5 million Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry is 280 acres, the largest greenspace in the City of Atlanta. It will also be transformative for Westside neighborhoods and become the home of a critical 2.4-billion-gallon backup source of drinking water for the city.

Park elements include a grand entrance, circulation drives, multiple rain gardens, a playground, parking lots, a grand lawn, and a spectacular overlook to view the quarry reservoir, trails and Mercedes Benz Stadium.

LONG is excited for this milestone completion and is currently designing the south trail extension connecting Westside Park to Woodson Park Academy, Grove Park Community, and Proctor Creek Trail.

Bridge Replacement Complete in Elbert County

LONG recently completed a bridge project in Elbert County for CR 313/Fork Road at Deep Creek. This project was part of the Low Impact Bridge Program (LIBP) for GDOT. William Bamberg, P.E., one of our transportation engineers, headed this pursuit. Services included replacing the existing structurally deficient posted bridge on CR 313 (Fork Creek Road) over Deep Creek. The existing typical section consisted of two, 7- to 8-foot dirt travel lanes with minimal shoulders and was replaced with two, 9- to 10-foot travel lanes with 4-foot shoulders and rural side ditches. The bridge was replaced along the existing alignment. The new single-span bridge is 60 feet long and 30 feet wide and includes a new guardrail.
