Project Name: Upper Proctor Creek Sewer Capacity Relief – Rodney Cook Park, Sr Park in Historic Vine City (Phases A, B and C)
Upper Proctor Creek Sewer Capacity Relief – Mitchell Street
The City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management is using the Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) delivery method for the Upper Proctor Creek Capacity Relief Project-Rodney Cook, Sr. Park in Historic Vine City (“Project”) to provide a storm water detention/retention facility consisting of a pond, water features, storm drain pipelines, sidewalks and roadway improvements. The pond will be located at the Rodney Cook, Sr. Park at Historic Vine City 13-acre Project site in Vine City between Joseph E. Boone Boulevard, Walnut Street, Thurmond Street and Elm Street.
The site is a low area that was once populated with residential homes. Today, most of the residential homes have been demolished but, many of the utilities are still in place. The project also includes soil remediation of the site and demolition of the remaining residences. CMAR will be responsible for oversight during construction of the entire project to ensure regulatory compliance with permits and approved remediation plans.
The Department of Watershed Management is responsible for maintenance of the combined sewer system to facilitate proper drainage for the city public rights-of-way. This Project will address the combined sewer system capacity relief for Mineral Springs and Beckwith Street Trunks. The Projects is intended to provide a means of collecting surface water runoff and redirecting the flow away from the combined sewer system to provide a comprehensive solution to reduce combined sewer flows in the area.
The scope of the project includes:
Installing a new capacity relief storage facility and green infrastructure
Re-routing 1,100 LF of 96-inch combined trunk sewer
Extending 48” storm sewer to the Georgia World Congress Center Parking lot
Installing pipeline and adjusting grade of streets in the project area
Soil remediation and utility relocation
Enhances system operational efficiency and reliability
Reduces frequency and cost of corrective and emergency maintenance
Provides essential capacity relief to the Beckwith combined sewer trunk
Decreases frequency and magnitude of flooding in the vicinity of Rodney Cook, Sr. Park
