Roswell Breaks Ground on Hardscrabble Green Loop

The City of Roswell kicked off construction of the Hardscrabble Green Loop recently with a groundbreaking ceremony at Roswell High School.

The Hardscrabble Green Loop is a segment of the Roswell Loop, that will eventually connect all of the City’s parks and schools with sidewalks and trails. This project will add a 10-foot multi-use path on the south side of the road, a 5-foot sidewalk on the north side of the road, and 4-foot bike lanes in the road between King Road and Etris Road. A new roundabout at Hardscrabble Road/Chaffin Road will replace the existing traffic signal as part of this project. There will also be bike shoulders and a sidewalk added to Chaffin Road from Hardscrabble to Northgate Trace.

The project is expected to take 18 months to complete, weather permitting. Drivers may experience periodic delays when the road is temporarily closed for construction. During these times, the public will be notified of delays through the City’s social media channels, as well as message boards placed near the limits of construction at Hardscrabble/King Roads and Hardscrabble/Etris Roads. If lane closures are necessary, they will be permitted only from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. when school is in session and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. when school is not in session. Hardscrabble Groundbreaking Ceremony

Roswell Transportation Director Steven Acenbrack said, “This project will improve the safety, mobility and livability of this corridor in a noticeable way. The technical engineering that went into this project is going to make for a more walkable city. It is truly going to transform this area like few projects have ever done before.”

The project costs $5.8 million and is funded jointly by the Federal Highway Administration, Georgia Department of Transportation, Atlanta Regional Commission, and the City of Roswell.
