Tree Down in Chastain Park Blocking Hillside

September 12, 2017

This morning I think I found the culprit causing the west side of Chastain Park to not have power the day after Tropical Storm Irma blew by Atlanta. Here is a picture of the tree down at the corner of Hillside Drive & Broadland Road, blocking Hillside completely and pulling the power lines to the ground. There were no signs of Georgia Power in the neighborhood meaning it could be some time before power is restored. Y’all be careful out there.

Powers Ferry Road to Reopen Today in Chastain Park

August 17, 2017

Powers Ferry Road Construction-2

For those of us that live in Chastain Park, the light traffic on Powers Ferry Road has been refreshing. However, forgetting that it is closed every time I leave the neighborhood is not as much fun. On Monday I noticed that the hole in the road had been filled in for the most part, minus a foot or so of concrete needing to be added to the top. Today that is happening. All hands are on deck with finishing touches being applied to the new drain that now enters the golf course from under the road, and the paving trucks taking care of  paving the road. The latest report from the Chastain Park Conservancy is that Powers Ferry Road will reopen today at 4pm.

All new pipes have been installed under Powers Ferry and let out at the bottom of the hill on the golf course. So once they open the road it should be smooth sailing until they start working on replacing the Nancy Creek bridge, which could take as long as a year to complete.
