The Five Points Intersection Improvement Project, engineered by American Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has been recognized as a state winner, small project category in the Inaugural ACEC (American Council of Engineering Companies) Georgia Engineering Excellence Awards.
Coweta County and the City of Newnan shared costs based on jurisdictional boundaries and shared other aspects of the project as well.
The County’s Transportation and Engineering department contracted with the engineering consultants and managed the design for the project, with city engineers working with us from conception through final design. The City handled ROW acquisition and negotiations. The County contracted with the construction company (ER Snell) for the actual construction of the project with the City working with County construction inspectors on matters concerning the portion of the project within the Newnan limits. The City also incorporated curb/gutter, sidewalks, and enhanced landscaping into the design.
Your support of SPLOST made this project possible.
The project demonstrated an excellent working relationship to assist the transportation needs of a growing community.
The new roundabout will be recognized in February 2017 by Georgia's premier annual engineering awards competition recognizing innovation and exceptional projects by Georgia engineers.
The Five Points Intersection is a joint project between the City of Newnan and Coweta County, as the area contains both City and County properties. This renovation will improve the navigation of the intersections of East Newnan Road, Martin Luther King and Poplar Road. Currently, these intersections are very confusing and the much needed project will reduce the risk of accidents tremendously.
See the overlay below to get an idea of the changes that will be involved in construction. The project is funded through SPLOST 2007 and SPLOST 2013.
