Bagley Streetscape Project
Construction Update! 6.15.2020
I hope everyone is well. We are back with an update on the Bagley Streetscape Project. First off, I want to thank everyone for the patience with the project during construction this past late summer and fall. Over the winter and spring, we have been keeping a note of punchlist items to be completed, these are construction related items that need to either be fixed, adjusted or completed. This week we are going to begin working on those activities this week.
Please keep in mind that these activities are weather permitting. If there are any updates to the work week we will do the best we can to get those updates out to this group, also we maintain updates on our project website.
- Concrete slab replacement to correct drainage
- Survey of drainage structures
- Installation of remaining signs
- Cleaning out newly installed drainage structures
- General project cleanup (cleaning of building faces, castings/lids, pavement/pavers, etc.)
Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions or comments,

Bagley between 24th Street to I-75 Service Drive will be re-envisioned as a “shared street”. Bagley will be a versatile new curb-less street that lets the street serve traffic and business needs, while transforming into a lively plaza for special events. The project will include enhanced lighting, brick pavers, plantings, and decorations, while making it a better place for residents, visitors, and businesses.
What is Going On?
Construction for roadway and shared street improvements between 24th Street to I-75 Service Drive.
What Changes will I see?
This project will provide a shared street experience for the corridor that will include new roadway pavement, underground infrastructure, festoon and traditional lighting, street furniture, brick pavers, and landscaping.
Why are These Changes Being Made?
The goal of a streetscape project is to achieve a beautiful corridor where neighborhood businesses can thrive and where people feel safe and welcomed. The improvements will better support all forms of transportation including walking, biking, riding transit and taking a car.
