From the City of Sandy Springs:

Lake Forrest Drive is now open. The City completed slope stabilization repairs one week ahead of schedule.

A geotechnical analysis conducted in late summer indicated long-term deterioration of the soil environment along the slope. Since 2009, the City received 13 work order requests related to mud/rock slides and trees down along Lake Forrest Drive with eight of those work orders occurring in 2013.

The slope stabilization project included installation of a structural catch system and vertical wall. The cost of the project was $750,000.

Shaved 10-15 minutes off my local neighborhood commute. Hallelujah!
