Fayette Commission to vote on West F’ville Bypass projects


The Fayette County Commission will vote Wednesday afternoon on three bid awards for work on the first phase of the west Fayetteville bypass.

A bid for $624,529 is expected to be awarded to American Contractors, Inc. for installation of a traffic signal where the bypass crosses Ga. Highway 54.

Also on tap are a $112,421 bid for storm drain installation to Southern Crescent Site Development and a $92,645 bid for concrete work, including curb and gutter installation.

The bid recommendations are on the agenda for the county’s workshop meeting Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. Normally the commission doesn’t vote on items discussed in the workshop meetings but an exception is being made this month because the commission is canceling its first regular meeting of the month, which would have occurred Thursday night.

The meeting will take place in the commission’s conference room and will be open to the public.

The first phase of the bypass, when completed, will stretch from Huiet Road to Sandy Creek Road. Once all three phases are complete the bypass will stretch from Ga. Highway 85 south at Harp Road to Ga. Highway 92 north at Westbridge Road.
