The final phase of roadwork at Sandy Creek Park wraps up today as crews complete installation of 6 crosswalks, goring, and stop bars on the park's roadways.  The new crosswalks improve safety for pedestrians at 6 mid-block crossings while the stop bars and goring should help better delineate traffic flow for vehicles.

We would like to thank ACC's Transportation and Public Works for their assistance on this project which was funded by the 2011 SPLOST.

Update - March 7
Tuesday, March 7, crews completed repaving Beechtree Drive, Campsite Drive, and the Beach Service Drive. Thursday, March 9, crews restriped two parking lots and installed 107 parallel parking spaces on the loop end of Beechtree Drive converting it into a one-way road.  The next phase of roadwork is expected to begin in about a month. 

While work is underway, affected roadways and parking areas may be temporarily closed leaving some facilities in the park temporarily inaccessible.  We currently expect to complete most of the work on Thursday bringing the park fully back online for the beautiful weekend weather.

Phase two of the pavement maintenance project being conducted at Sandy Creek Park is slated to begin this Thursday or Friday and may result in closures of Beechtree Drive, Campsite Drive, and the park service roads.  Paving work may resume early next week; however, all park roadways are expected to be open this weekend.

This paving project--sub-project 1 of  SPLOST 2011 Project 14: Sandy Creek Park Improvements--will rehabilitate more than 2.25 miles of roadways and service drives plus two of the park's 15 parking lots.  Phase one of this project performed crack seal work on all of the park roadways and was completed several weeks ago.  Phase two--starting now--will conduct chip sealing, patching, milling, repaving, and overlay activities as required to restore the condition of all of the park roadways and service drives.  Phase three--expected to begin in early spring--will install striping and roadway markings including the conversion of part of Beechtree Drive into a one-way loop with parallel parking.

Related work at Sandy Creek has replaced all of the regulatory roadway signage and installed new vehicular wayfinding signage to assist patrons in navigating the county's largest park.  Additional sub-projects at Sandy Creek will upgrade the picnic areas, replace all of the trash and recycling cans, renovate the dog parks, conduct trail improvements, and replace the one existing fishing pier with three new floating piers.
