Five Points Roundabout Project Being Recognized for Engineering Excellence


A joint City-County project is being recognized for engineering excellence. The Five Points Intersection Improvement Project, engineered by American Engineers, Inc. (AEI) has been recognized as a state winner, small project category in the Inaugural ACEC (American Council of Engineering Companies) Georgia Engineering Excellence Awards.

Coweta County and the City of Newnan shared costs based on jurisdictional boundaries and shared other aspects of the project as well.

Coweta County’s Transportation and Engineering department contracted with the engineering consultants and managed the design for the project, with City of Newnan engineers working with us from conception through final design. The City handled ROW acquisition and negotiations. The County contracted with the construction company (ER Snell) for the actual construction of the project with the City working with County construction inspectors on matters concerning the portion of the project within the Newnan limits. The City also incorporated curb/gutter, sidewalks, and enhanced landscaping into the design.

Citizen support of SPLOST made this project possible.

The project demonstrated an excellent working relationship to assist the transportation needs of a growing community.

The new roundabout will be recognized in February 25, 2017 by Georgia’s premier annual engineering awards competition recognizing innovation and exceptional projects by Georgia engineers.
