Social Circle - Fairplay Road, a major east-west connector in southeastern Walton County, will be relocated as part of the Hard Labor Creek Regional Reservoir project. This project includes 9,500 linear feet of road improvements, as well as the construction of two new bridges which will span the reservoir at Hard Labor Creek and Reedy Creek. Road construction is presently underway with a scheduled completion date of January 2015.
The Mount Paron Church Road culvert project was required to elevate the roadway above the proposed water elevation of Hard Labor Creek Regional Reservoir. This project included the construction of a double 10' x 10' reinforced concrete box culvert at Rocky Creek, and raising the road elevation at this location by 17 vertical feet to clear the reservoir pool level. Construction began in October 2013, and Mount Paron Church Road was reopened to traffic in April 2014.
