Transportation Construction Updates

Post Date:11/24/2020 12:24 PM
As we approach the end of the year, the City of Roswell would like to give you an update on some transportation projects that are ongoing. As you move about the City, be mindful of road closures, detours and flagging efforts. Below is a list of major projects taking place around the City. You are encouraged to avoid these areas and expect delays.

  1. Rucker Road Project
    This project is located on Rucker Road between SR-140/Houze Road and the Roswell City limit with Alpharetta. It will add several new turn lanes to improve traffic operations, and it will also add two new multi-use paths on both sides of Rucker Road to better enhance bicycle and pedestrian mobility. The Rucker Road project was done in coordination with the City of Alpharetta, and the Roswell portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in February 2021.

  2. Road Maintenance: Resurfacing Roads
    1. Sheringham Court from Cul-de-Sac to Cul-de-Sac
    2. Sheringham Drive from Old Alabama Road to Sheringham Court
    3. Sheringham Trail from Cranberry Trail to Cul-de-Sac
    4. Kensington Square Subdivision
    5. Horseshoe Bend Subdivision
    Resurfacing takes on average one week to complete. There may be lane closures, detours, road closures or a flagging operation in these areas.

  3. Atlanta Street/Oxbo Road Project
    This project consists of the realignment of Oxbo Road and Oxbo Drive to eliminate the staggered intersection at SR 9/SR 120/Atlanta Street and to convert Oxbo Drive to a two-way street between Mimosa Boulevard and Atlanta Street (SR-9/120). It also extends Elm Street one block further to the north to a new intersection with Oxbo and Pleasant Hill Street.

    This project has encountered several significant delays. Due to the global COVID pandemic, GA Power has experienced delays in the acquisition process with property owners. This has, in turn, delayed their utility relocation. For major transportation projects, utility relocation is typically the first major effort of the project and must be completed before the City's contractor can complete their work. In addition, the City has experienced right-of-way acquisition delays. This project is anticipated to be completed in 2021.

  4. North Coleman Mini Roundabout at Lake Crest Drive
    The North Coleman Road Mini Roundabout project—the first mini roundabout of its kind in Roswell—is designed to mitigate traffic issues cited by residents in this area. This project will be helpful in mitigating excessive speed, while also providing multimodal crossings and safety improvements. This project is anticipated to be completed at the end of 2020.
