[ARCHIVED] Improvements to downtown squares underway

For Immediate Release
Date: February 15, 2013

The City began making improvements to the walkways of Reynolds Square this week. Tree roots caused damage to aging concrete walkways in several places. Crews are removing those areas in preparation for the installation of new brick-on-sand walkways. The new brick walkways will be raised over the existing tree roots and will provide wheelchair access to the John Wesley monument in the center of the square. New benches will be installed level with the new walkways.

The square will remain open during construction and there will be north/south and east/west walkways open during construction. The walkway improvements are expected to be completed in early March, with landscape improvements to follow.

Maintenance work is also being done in and around Lafayette Square by Georgia Power. Georgia Power is replacing older overhead conductors with new conductors. To accommodate service equipment, mulch has been placed over existing sod in the square. Georgia Power will be replacing the sod when the work is complete. Similar work will be conducted above the canopy of Lafayette Square as well. The work is expected to be completed by mid-March.
