Following a summer of excessive rain and two weeks of rain totaling more than 10 inches, a stormwater culvert under Spear Road failed on November 12, causing significant washout of the road itself just inside the City limits of Peachtree City. City crews made temporary repairs, which allowed the roadway to open to regular traffic the following day.
On November 18, in anticipation of another significant rain event, Peachtree City closed Spear Road at the culvert to ensure public safety should additional damage occur during the storm. City staff inspected the culvert and roadway following the storm on the morning of November 19. At that time, additional damage, including holes in the stormwater pipe itself and potential voids under the road bed, were found. As a result, the bridge will remain closed at the location of the culvert until permanent repairs can be made.
This project was already on the City's list of active stormwater projects prior to the collapse on November 12. As a result, design work is already completed, and the City has put the project out for an emergency bid that is due November 30. Council should be able to award the contract on December 3. Spear Road will remain closed to through traffic at the bridge and culvert until the project has been completed, which is expected to take 30-45 days once the contract has been awarded.
You might see the Children's Librarian at your school, daycare or even a community event! In fact, the Children's Librarian has made 70 visits this year and reached 7619 children!
Kids might hear funny or scary stories or do some interactive games. Older kids may take turns filling in Mad Libs to create a silly story. Kids might get a chance to practice their presentation skills by telling jokes and performing reader's theater. Maybe a class will get to see the newest additions to the library's collection. Kids might even see the Children's Librarian at their school's Literacy Night or Career Day. Plus, parents or teachers might see the Children's Librarian at a PTO meeting or staff meeting. Patrons might even see the Children's Librarian at some community events like the Back to School Expo.
Studies show that the more kids read, the more they succeed. However, the reality is that families are busy. Kids aren't always able to get to the library so the library comes to them!
Contact Erin Wen, the Children's Librarian at Fayette County Public Library if you would like for her to visit your school or event! firstname.lastname@example.org
