NATIONAL PARKS SERVICE
Creating an access road for the national parks service
The National Park Service (NPS) owns and operates the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area (CRNRA) located north of the City of Atlanta, Georgia on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
R2T assisted the NPS with the design and construction of the Hewlett Field access road and a pedestrian trail at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area in Sandy Springs, Georgia.
R2T’s goal was to provide a designated access road conducive to the Hewlett Field area of the Island Ford Unit of the park.
R2T also completed design build services of an existing trail to the Chattahoochee River. The constructed trail provides a gentler slope, handrail, and landings every 40 feet of the trail to improve handicap access. In addition, pervious/porous concrete landing was added at the end of the trail.
R2T worked with the NPS to develop and optimize the most cost effective solution and completed an environmental assessment statement for both components of the project.
