Northpoint Parkway Streetscapes SUE Services

LONG is proud to be providing the Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) services as a member of Columbia Engineering and Services, Inc.‘s team for the North Point Parkway Streetscape Enhancements. This project will span from Mansell Road to Haynes Bridge Road – within the City of Alpharetta, Georgia.

The primary focus of this project is to improve and provide infrastructure that encourages alternative modes of transportation such as walking, bicycling, and use of the existing public transit system. The overarching goal is to reduce traffic congestion while improving mobility within the North Point Retail and Employment District.

We’re happy to play a role in this vision to create a more walkable environment based on a “park once walk everywhere” approach that emphasizes connectivity and green spaces!

GDOT Awards Long Statewide On-Call Contract for SUE

LONG was recently awarded a contract to provide statewide on-call subsurface utility engineering (SUE) services for the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT). LONG will support the GDOT on an “On-Call” basis; this newly awarded contract will remain in effect for three years.

LONG has been providing SUE services throughout the Southeast for the past 5+ years and is considered one of the largest SUE providers in the region, with more than 32 talented SUE staff.

Over the past five years, LONG has successfully worked on more than 300 SUE projects in Georgia, 150 of these SUE projects were directly for GDOT. Our technicians are experienced in utility records research and we staff nine in-house SUE crews that are outfitted with the latest equipment to provide designating, ground penetrating radar (GPR), and test holes. Our crews routinely locate underground utilities including water, gas, power, communication, CATV, fiber optics, fuel lines, force mains, and sanitary sewer lines for various utility companies/providers.

We are excited for the opportunity to lead the Overhead/Subsurface Utility Engineering (SUE) Services for this important statewide GDOT contract, and we are committed to exceeding GDOT’s expectations.

SR 11 Bridge Replacement in Monroe, GA

SR 11 Bridge Replacement:

LONG was responsible for roadway construction plans for the replacement of the existing bridge on SR 11 over Apalachee River just north of Monroe, Georgia. With a project length of approximately 0.6 miles, the project had several historical and environmental resources to avoid during the design. The existing bridge, constructed in 1942, was replaced with a new offset bridge while maintaining two lanes of traffic and staged construction throughout the duration of the project. State Route 11 at this location is a rural two-lane roadway with 12′ travel lanes and rural shoulders.

Flyover of Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry

The $26.5 million Westside Park at Bellwood Quarry project is the largest greenspace in the City of Atlanta. We have been a proud member of Reeves Young’s team, providing the civil design services for this 280-acre park. This project will 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, parking lots, a Grand Lawn, green infrastructure stormwater management, accessible trails, and a spectacular overlook to view the quarry reservoir.

LONG has provided the design of all roadways, grading, and drainage plans as well as sediment, erosion and pollution control plans for Phase 1A of the project that encompassed 20 acres. Phase 1B included the addition of a 166-space parking lot that drains to 6 bioretention ponds and infiltration trenches, a Grand Lawn, a second restroom building, a pavilion and 6,800 feet of accessible trails. LONG is currently entering Phase 1C of the project with the design of an additional mile of trail rim that will go around the top of the Quarry.

This bold, contemporary architecture features thoughtfully-designed condos in one of the city’s most popular and walkable neighborhoods.

Each of the 279 residences and penthouses offer floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of downtown and Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Homeowners will enjoy two landscaped amenity decks, which include a saltwater swimming pool and whirlpool spa, outdoor kitchen, dining areas and a fire pit, and a yoga lawn. Residents can work out in the state-of-the-art fitness center or visit nearby greenspace including the Atlanta Beltline Westside Trail and new Westside Quarry Park.

These amenities will introduce an impressive addition to the neighborhood, which has an excellent mix of restaurants, retail and entertainment set in a historic district coupled with the nationally acclaimed Georgia Tech campus.
