Following a summer of excessive rain and two weeks of rain totaling more than 10 inches, a stormwater culvert under Spear Road failed on November 12, causing significant washout of the road itself just inside the City limits of Peachtree City. City crews made temporary repairs, which allowed the roadway to open to regular traffic the following day.
On November 18, in anticipation of another significant rain event, Peachtree City closed Spear Road at the culvert to ensure public safety should additional damage occur during the storm. City staff inspected the culvert and roadway following the storm on the morning of November 19. At that time, additional damage, including holes in the stormwater pipe itself and potential voids under the road bed, were found. As a result, the bridge will remain closed at the location of the culvert until permanent repairs can be made.
This project was already on the City's list of active stormwater projects prior to the collapse on November 12. As a result, design work is already completed, and the City has put the project out for an emergency bid that is due November 30. Council should be able to award the contract on December 3. Spear Road will remain closed to through traffic at the bridge and culvert until the project has been completed, which is expected to take 30-45 days once the contract has been awarded.here to apply.
