The Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority’s East Cobb Pipeline
The pipeline project has surpassed the halfway point of construction. With over 18,000 feet of new 54” diameter water main in the ground, crews continue installation along two challenging sections of roadway. By mid-February of 2017, one crew plans to complete pipeline construction and temporary paving between Paper Mill Road and Old Canton Road along Terrell Mill Road. This pipe-laying crew should be able to maintain two-way traffic at all times, although there will be several traffic shifts and minor disruptions to traffic flow as work progresses. The second crew will be working along Lower Roswell Road from near Indian Hills Parkway/Cove Drive towards the crossing of Sope Creek (near Shadowlawn Rd.). Due to the smaller 3-lane width of roadway and for safety of the crew and travelling public, traffic will be restricted to one lane in the immediate work zone from 9am-4pm daily. As work progresses, alternative work schedules will be considered for this section.    

For more information, please visit CCMWA’s website. For questions or concerns, please call the project hotline at 770-514-5301. CCMWA appreciates your continued patience as construction progresses..

The Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority East Cobb Pipeline
Installation will continue to have two pipe laying crews working at different locations.  One crew is working westward, moving down the Indian Hills side of Lower Roswell Rd.  The second crew is working eastward from Paper Mill Rd. towards Lower Roswell and Old Canton Roads.  Repaving of Terrell Mill Rd. at the intersection of Paper Mill Rd. as well as an additional traffic shift will occur by Monday, 11/14/16.    

On Election Day, no pipeline work will take place along Lower Roswell Rd. near Indian Hills Pkwy, allowing one lane of traffic in both directions.
 
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please call the Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority’s East Cobb Pipeline Hotline at 770-514-5301.

East Cobb Pipeline: Expect Indian Hills Parkway closure 10/27-10/31
While a crew is installing pipe in front of Terrell Mill Park, a second crew will continue the work that happened this summer on Lower Roswell at Indian Hills Parkway and Cove Drive. Starting at about 9 a.m. on Thursday, October 27, Indian Hills Parkway at Lower Roswell will be closed. Lower Roswell will remain open to traffic, with one lane in each direction. Cars will be able to enter and exit Cove Drive in either direction, but they won’t be able to go straight onto Indian Hills Parkway. Cars that want to enter or exit Indian Hills Parkway will be directed toward alternate routes. Signs will be placed in the neighborhood and on Lower Roswell Road to guide drivers. The intersection will reopen on Monday morning, October 31.

After the 31st, the crew will continue pipeline installation westward, moving down the same (Indian Hills) side of Lower Roswell. For maps of some of the upcoming construction zones, go to www.ccmwa.org. Updates on this and the rest of the project will be available through this newsletter, CobbCommute.org, Twitter (@waterCCMWA), www.ccmwa.org and the project hotline (770-514-5301).

East Cobb Pipeline: Work to begin northeast of Terrell Mill Park
Crews have nearly completed all of the pipeline installation along Terrell Mill Road from near Terrell Mill Park to Cobb Parkway. (One crew is still working on a small section out of the road near Powers Ferry Plaza; that work should be finished around November 1.) Work is now scheduled to begin on Section 3 of the East Cobb Pipeline. Starting on Wednesday, October 19, traffic controls will be put out in a 700-foot section of Terrell Mill from the fire station to just north of Paper Mill Road. Crews are in the area now preparing the lanes for their short-term configuration of two northbound lanes and one southbound within the construction zone. This portion will take about 3 weeks, from digging to paving. When crews move to a new section, traffic controls will move with them. Traffic arrangements for each new construction zone will be announced before work begins.

East Cobb Pipeline: Crews on track to reopen all lanes on Terrell Mill at Delk by Oct. 5
Heavy construction activity is still ongoing on Terrell Mill between Delk Road and just north of Greyfield Drive. Traffic is flowing in both directions, but the number of lanes in either direction might shift a few times during the construction. Barring weather delays or other issues, all lanes of Terrell Mill in that area will be open to traffic and have a temporary driving surface by October 5.
CCMWA appreciates your patience as crews work their way across the elongated intersection to connect to the other sections of pipeline installed earlier this year. We ask drivers to use caution, pay close attention to lane shifts and be considerate of cars entering and exiting the neighborhoods within the construction zone.

East Cobb Pipeline: Terrell Mill detour to return briefly during fall break
Starting tonight, crews will begin installing pipe through the intersection of Terrell Mill and Delk Roads. During this first weekend of construction only, southbound traffic on Terrell Mill will again be rerouted to Delk Road and Powers Ferry. Northbound traffic on Terrell Mill will continue normally. Crews will work around the clock that weekend, and if all goes well, they will be able to restore two-way traffic on Terrell Mill by Monday morning (9/26) before the rush. From September 26 to October 5, drivers can expect heavy construction activity and traffic shifts in the work zone. That is, the number of lanes in either direction might shift a few times during the construction, which will be on Terrell Mill between Delk Road and just north of Greyfield Drive. Barring weather delays or other issues, all lanes of Terrell Mill in that area will be open to traffic and have a temporary driving surface by October 5.

East Cobb Pipeline: Terrell Mill open; crews remain in area
Terrell Mill Road between Delk Road and Powers Ferry Road has been reopened to two-way traffic, but crews are still hard at work in the area to finish this section of the pipeline. Most of the work will continue out of the roads. However, there will be a need for some additional lane closures on Terrell Mill between Delk Road and Greyfield Drive. CCMWA is working with the county department of transportation to schedule this work during an upcoming school break.
The tentative schedule is that the work will begin on Saturday, September 25 and take about 9 days, concluding around October 4. Crews will work 24 hours per day to install 1,100 feet of pipe in that time. Current plans will maintain two-way traffic on Terrell Mill, but the available lanes within the construction zone will shift and shrink in number. CCMWA will release final details about the traffic control plans as soon as they are approved by the county DOT.

East Cobb Pipeline: Terrell Mill/Delk detour still in place for school start
As school starts in Cobb County next week, parents should be aware that the two southbound lanes of Terrell Mill Road from Delk Road to just past Powers Ferry Road remain closed for ongoing pipe installation. This situation is especially noteworthy for parents picking up and dropping off at Brumby Elementary School. Southbound drivers are being routed to Delk Road to get to Powers Ferry. Northbound traffic on that portion of Terrell Mill is proceeding normally. (A map of this configuration is available on the ccmwa.org website.) Two-way traffic on Terrell Mill likely will be restored in early September, barring weather delays or other complications.

On Cobb Parkway, crews are replacing a 20-inch steel pipeline from 1942 and creating a tunnel under the Windy Hill Road intersection. The digging of the tunnel is now complete. The pipeline work is near Poplar Creek and will conclude at Herodian Way. Crews expect to be out of the road on Cobb Parkway by the end of September. They will leave a temporary driving surface, and Cobb County DOT will eventually do a permanent repaving.

6/6/16
East Cobb Pipeline: Indian Hills Closure Postponed
CCMWA has postponed the closure of Indian Hills Parkway. During the water main installation work that closed Lower Roswell, crews discovered rock in the area that would make the work on Indian Hills Parkway take longer. The planners are going to regroup and figure out the safest and fastest way to deal with the rock so the closure of Indian Hills Parkway doesn’t need to take any longer than necessary. CCMWA will be able to announce a new schedule for the Indian Hills Parkway closure in a few weeks.

Drivers will continue to see crews on Lower Roswell as they finish the last touches of the water main installation. They will need to keep one lane of Lower Roswell closed for about another week to 10 days. Crews will also be back on Terrell Mill Road at Water Place. Updates on this and the rest of the project will be available through this newsletter, CobbCommute.org, Twitter (@waterCCMWA), www.ccmwa.org and the project hotline (770-514-5301).

East Cobb Pipeline: Closure on Lower Roswell
The closure of Lower Roswell Road at Indian Hills Parkway/Cove Drive began successfully at 8am on June 1. They are making normal progress, so if all continues to go well, the road will reopen on Sunday. Crews must work continuously until the pipe is installed and the road is reopened, so residents and passersby can expect normal construction sights and sounds such as lights at night, rumbling engines and back-up beeps. The reopened section of road will have a temporary driving surface that will eventually be repaved by Cobb County DOT.

The following weekend, Friday June 10 through Monday June 13 (in the morning), crews will be back in the area to close a small portion of Indian Hills Parkway only, just off Lower Roswell. This crew also will be working 24 hours per day. A portion of the westbound lane of Lower Roswell will be closed for safety, leaving one lane in each direction. Cars attempting to turn onto Indian Hills Parkway will be directed to one of the other entrances to Indian Hills on Lower Roswell, such as Fairfield Drive and Indian Hills Trail. Drivers might have noticed electronic message boards announcing both projects. Please note these activities will not overlap. For more information, please check the CCMWA website, www.ccmwa.org, for the latest information on the East Cobb Pipeline. You can also call the project hotline at 770-514-5301.

The stretch of Terrell Mill between Haverford Lane and Delk Road is almost ready to be reopened. Crews are working to restore four-lane traffic by March 11 (weather permitting). However, the recent rains left muddy ground that needs to be replaced with dry, compactable dirt before paving can be finished. (Paving over mud is a major cause of potholes.) If the dirt replacement and paving aren’t finished on Friday, crews will work over the weekend to get the job done, weather permitting.

East Cobb Pipeline: Portion of Terrell Mill to be closed March 4-7
Crews will be closing a portion of Terrell Mill between Bentley Road and I-75. They will be digging a large trench across Terrell Mill. CCMWA, Cobb County Department of Transportation and Cobb County Police determined it would be safest for crews and the driving public to temporarily close that section of road to traffic. Flag men will be on hand to guide drivers through detours around the site. The road closure will begin at 9pm on Friday, March 4th and be reopened at 6am on Monday, March 7th, at the latest. Signs will be posted to alert drivers of the impending closure and official detour routes.

Also, on Monday, February 29, crews will start work on The Exchange between Water Place and the building located at 1775 The Exchange. Crews will be setting up traffic controls and bringing in materials and equipment. Two lanes will be closed, leaving one lane in each direction for traffic.
Rainy weather has slowed progress on restoring the entire stretch of Terrell Mill from Delk Road to Haverford Lane, but it is still on schedule to reopen the first week of March.

East Cobb Pipeline making progress
Crews are still at work on Sections 1 and 2 of the East Cobb Pipeline. Current progress rates have the two sections on track to be completed sometime in May, as planned. (That estimate will continue to be revised as work progresses.) Based on weather forecasts and the progress Atlanta Gas and Light is making in moving its line, CCMWA expects to be able to reopen a portion of Terrell Mill between Haverford Lane and Greyfield Drive before the first of March.

East Cobb Pipeline continues progress
Crews are still at work on Sections 1 and 2 of the East Cobb Pipeline. Current progress rates have the two sections on track to be completed sometime in May, as planned. (That estimate will continue to be revised as work progresses.) The gas company is at work in Section 1 to address the conflicting line. While that work is keeping some lanes closed, crews will take the opportunity to reconfigure curbs and medians in front of the school site before construction begins there later this year. The gas work and curb reconfiguration are both expected to be completed in mid-February, and then crews will be able to reopen portions of Terrell Mill. As always, CCMWA asks drivers to continue to be patient and safe as they move through construction zones.

East Cobb Pipeline work resumes
Crews are again at work on Sections 1 and 2 of the East Cobb Pipeline. Current progress rates have the two sections on track to be completed sometime in May, as planned. (That estimate will continue to be revised as work progresses.) The gas line issue within Section 1 (just south of Terrell Mill Park) is also expected to be resolved by early to mid-February, which will allow crews to reopen a section of Terrell Mill Road.

 2/16/15
East Cobb Pipeline work continues
Construction crews are making progress in Sections 1 and 2 of the East Cobb Pipeline. Unfortunately, a gas line remains in conflict, so crews still can’t install about 600 feet of pipe in the first segment of section 1. Crews have paved as much as they can so the segment of road can be reopened as quickly as possible after the gas line issue has been resolved. In the meantime, crews will take this opportunity to reconfigure curbs and medians in front of the school site before construction begins there next year. Work will be suspended between Christmas and New Year’s, per a request from the Cobb County Department of Transportation.

CCMWA is aware that lengthening the lane closure to continue construction progress has created new traffic headaches. CCMWA is continually working with the Cobb County Department of Transportation to revise traffic control plans to ease congestion while the longer lane closure remains. It is expected that the gas line issue will be resolved in January, and pipeline crews will be able to finish the first segment and shrink the lane closure by mid-February.

 12/9/15
Pipeline progress to lengthen lane closure on Terrell Mill
Crews are preparing to move on to the next construction segment in Section 1 of the East Cobb Pipeline, which extends the lane closure from Haverford Lane to the intersection of Terrell Mill Road and Grayfield Drive, still maintaining two-way traffic. An unresolved conflict with an existing gas line has delayed the installation of about 600 feet of pipe, so the first construction segment can’t yet be reopened for traffic. Crews have paved as much as they can so the segment of road can be reopened as quickly as possible after the gas line issue has been resolved, which should take 2-4 weeks. In both the old and new segments, local traffic to access intersecting streets will remain open. Residents are asked to follow and obey the posted traffic control signs to access the affected subdivisions. Work also continues on Section 2, which begins on Terrell Mill west of Powers Ferry.

12/2/15
Crews at work on two sections of East Cobb Pipeline
Construction is now in progress in Sections 1 and 2 of the East Cobb Pipeline. Section 1 will run along Terrell Mill Road, from Haverford Lane to Powers Ferry Road. Section 2 begins on the west side of Powers Ferry Road and will progress west, mostly along Terrell Mill Road, to Cobb Parkway. Traffic controls are in place in both sections. As always, CCMWA asks drivers to continue to be patient and safe as they move through construction zones, especially in dark and wet conditions.

East Cobb Pipeline Phase 2 lane closures to begin this weekend
While progress continues on section 1 of the East Cobb Pipeline, the start of section 2 is now imminent. This week, crews are preparing its first construction segment, which is Terrell Mill Road from the west side of Powers Ferry to Bentley Street. Preparation includes bringing in barriers, restriping lanes and reconfiguring the traffic signals at Bentley and Terrell Mill, all in cooperation with Cobb County Department of Transportation. Current traffic control plans will maintain one lane in each direction with a central turn lane. Lanes will officially close on Sunday; delays are expected to be minimal. As always, CCMWA asks drivers to continue to be patient and safe as they move through construction zones, especially in dark and wet conditions.

11/11/15
Crews close to starting work on East Cobb Pipeline Section 2
Weather permitting, crews will start work on Section 2 of the East Cobb Pipeline during the week of November 16. The exact day still depends on the progress of ongoing preparation work, but drivers can expect lane closures to begin that week. Section 2 starts on the west side of Powers Ferry Road and will progress west along Terrell Mill Road to Cobb Parkway (US 41). As with Section 1, construction and its corresponding traffic controls will happen in segments. More information about traffic control plans will be available soon. Progress in Section 1 remains ongoing. To make up time caused by weather and other delays, crews will be working some Saturdays, starting this weekend. CCMWA asks drivers to continue to be patient and safe as they move through construction zones, especially in dark and wet conditions.

East Cobb Pipeline work continues
Rainy weather this week hasn’t dampened progress too much on the East Cobb Pipeline. Crews have been working at the Greenwood Trail end of this segment, and now they are preparing to move materials and equipment back to the Haverford Lane end to continue installing the pipe. A second crew is preparing to start concurrent work on Section 2, which will stretch from Powers Ferry Road to Cobb Parkway. Drivers can expect lane closures on that section of Terrell Mill to begin in early November. Current traffic control plans involve maintaining two lanes for traffic in each direction.

Crews preparing for next section of East Cobb Pipeline
Crews are continuing to make progress on installing the East Cobb Pipeline. This segment from Haverford Lane to Greenwood Trail is the first segment in Section 1, which will stretch along Terrell Mill to Powers Ferry Road. Section 1 is expected to take about 8 months to complete. In the meantime, additional crews are preparing to start Section 2, which will stretch from Powers Ferry Road to Cobb Parkway. Drivers can expect lane closures on that section of Terrell Mill to begin in early November. Current traffic control plans involve maintaining two lanes for traffic in each direction.

Work continues on East Cobb Pipeline
Crews have begun digging on Terrell Mill to install the East Cobb Pipeline. An underground gas line remains in conflict, but crews are going to work around it while CCMWA and Atlanta Gas Light seek a permanent solution. The 54-inch ductile iron pipe requires a trench that is, on average, 10 feet wide and 10-14 feet deep. This segment from Haverford Lane to Greenwood Trail is expected to take about 2-3 months to complete. CCMWA asks drivers to continue to be patient and safe as they move through the construction zone.

Utility conflict delaying East Cobb Pipeline
Earlier this week, crews on Terrell Mill found a high-pressure gas line underground that’s in conflict with the East Cobb Pipeline site. CCMWA is working with the utility, Atlanta Gas Light, to figure out the best way to work around the issue. That has put progress on hold, but crews have all materials and equipment ready to start work as soon as the gas line issue is resolved. Once pipeline installation begins, it is expected to take between 2 and 2.5 months to finish this segment. CCMWA asks drivers to continue to be patient and safe as they move through the construction zone.

After nearly a full work week of lane closures on Terrell Mill Road, traffic is adjusting to the new normal, and the Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority hopes drivers will continue to move safely through the construction area. A number of concerned motorists used the CCMWA website and project hotline to report some driving safety issues in and around the construction zone, and the Authority is working with police and the Cobb County Department of Transportation to address those concerns. Some options include adjusting the position of barricades for better visibility and looking at traffic signal timing. 

This week, crews began the work of tearing up the road, staging materials and assembling equipment at the construction starting point. All this activity has been and will remain behind the barriers, not in the roadway. Weather permitting, crews plan to start installing water main late next week. The Authority expects it will take 2-3 months to complete this first segment of section 1, from water main installation to pavement repair. The public will be given as much notice as possible when the lane closure is going to move to the next segment on Terrell Mill.

East Cobb Pipeline crews preparing for lane closures on Terrell Mill
The Cobb County-Marietta Water Authority moved the starting point for section 1 of the East Cobb Pipeline to Terrell Mill Road, just north of Haverford Lane. Crews are nearly done preparing the road for the traffic shift, which involves removing the median to make more room for two-way traffic before crews close one side of Terrell Mill from Haverford Lane to Greenwood Trail (reminder: the lane closures will move as construction moves). As soon as the road is ready, barricades will go up and crews will begin preparing the ground for pipe replacement.

Because there will be a large hole in the ground, barricades and lane closures must remain in place 24 hours per day. Crews will do most of their work during the day, however, because they are safer and more productive during daylight hours, and the noise of night work would disturb residents. For more information, please go to www.ccmwa.org or call the project hotline at 770-514-5301.
