Georgia DOT is conducting a series of improvement projects along SR 20, from I-575 to SR 400, to help improve east/west mobility, increase safety and decrease congestion along the 24-mile corridor between Canton and Cumming in Cherokee and Forsyth counties.
Jurisdictions along the corridor include the City of Canton, unincorporated communities of Buffington, Macedonia, Orange, and Free Home in Cherokee County, as well as the unincorporated community of Ducktown and the City of Cumming in Forsyth County. The project team has worked to refine the design concept based on traffic analysis, engineering requirements, utility impacts, and public comment.
T2 Utility Engineers provided Subsurface Utility Engineering and Utility Coordination services for the entire 24 mile corridor. CI/ASCE 38-02 Quality Level D investigation was completed for the concept development phase. Additionally, the T2ue team assisted in the analysis of route alternatives with respect to potential utility impacts. A utility assessment report was prepared detailing the potential impacts and approximate relocation costs for each. Given the immense size of this project corridor, our team was asked to provide deliverables in CADD (UTLE) to directly integrate into the format preferred by GDOT and the prime engineer design consultant.
The project timeline moved forward and the schedule was condensed. With our extensive resources, T2 Utility Engineers was able to expand the team to meet the new deadlines. We mobilized 10 additional field crew teams from across the US to complete the full Subsurface Utility Engineering investigation to Quality Level B standard on schedule. The client was extremely pleased that we were able to accommodate the change in schedule.
