Much needed improvements are coming to the intersection of Lower Fayetteville Road and Ga. Highway 154. The Coweta County Commission last week unanimously approved a bid of nearly $700,000 for work that will install a new traffic signal and turns lanes at the intersection.
Commissioners reviewed eight bids received for the project, awarding the contract to low bidder Matriarch Construction Company, Inc. for $697,889.
The project will include the installation of dedicated turn lanes on all sides of the intersection and a replacement for the traffic signal currently in use.
The work will begin in April, with a contract period of 270 days.
Project bids included a range of more than $300,000. The low bid by Matriarch was offset by the high bid of $1.028 million by E.R. Snell.
