Clarkston Streetscape Project
The City of Clarkston became eligible to receive up to $4 million dollars in federal funds, administered through the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) in 2006. In 2011, the Clarkston City Council authorized staff to begin the process to acquire the matching funds required to make this project a reality. After nearly 7 years of public information meetings, landscape and engineering design and right-of-way acquisitions, this project officially broke ground in April, 2018.
This project, totaling $6.5 million dollars, will provide new wider sidewalks, newly paved streets, landscaping, street lighting, gateway amenities, a pedestrian bridge, reduction of overhead utilities including placing all utilities underground along Market Street, new storm water infrastructure to include a bio-swell, new MARTA bus shelters and bus pull outs, street arbors and a host of additional practical and aesthetic amenities that will have a transformative effect on much of the City of Clarkston’s major thoroughfares.
The project scope will include East Ponce de Leon from the I-285 interchange down to Market Street. Market Street from North Indian Creek to Rowland Street. Rowland Street to Norman Road. Norman Road to the city limits (Milam Park). The construction time for this project is expected to be 18 months.
