Building Update for Piedmont Atlanta Tower: Week of August 25 – September 1

Peachtree Road Lane Closings: To coordinate with other activities and roadwork planned on Peachtree Road, there has been a change to the schedule for the water line connection for the Piedmont Atlanta Tower. Work will now be consolidated over a 6-day period from Thursday, September 7 through Tuesday, September 12. During this time, up to two lanes on Peachtree Road will be closed at a time, and a flagman will be present to direct traffic. All work will be completed during the day. We appreciate your patience during this construction.

Tower Cranes: Tower cranes are currently being erected in the fenced-off construction area. All three cranes will be erected by the middle of September.

Noise Levels Outside East Tower: Crews continue work outside the East tower and the offices near the former 1-Center location. Patients and staff may feel slight vibrations and hear drills during this time.

Major Site Excavation: Site excavation continues this week near the drilling sites. Trucks will exit onto Peachtree Road throughout the day and may cause brief intermittent traffic. Any loose dirt is removed from the trucks before exiting the construction site to ensure they do not compromise safety of patients, visitors or general traffic.

Rock Blasting: Crews are currently excavating the site for rock blasting needs. Any necessary blasts will take place as needed at 2:15 p.m.
