SR 6 / Thornton Road (Truck Friendly Lanes)

Cobb and Douglas Counties, Georgia

This 5.6-mile urban roadway widening project consisted of Quality Level D and Quality Level B SUE throughout. Quality Level D was completed first. This allowed the designers an opportunity to see what was out there and to prepare their design around any significant utilities. Quality Level B followed and gave a much more precise location of each utility so the designers could fine-tune their design. In all, over 250,000 ft. of underground utilities were designated, surveyed and mapped. This included an inventory for 700 poles and 150 sanitary sewer manholes that were dipped and connected. The final deliverable was a set of utility plans, complete with sanitary sewer layout and a pole data table.
