Houze Road (SR 140) at Hembree Road RoundaboutThis project will construct a multi-lane roundabout at the intersection of Houze Road/SR 140 and Hembree Road. It will also construct a multi-use trail along the south side of Hembree Road for pedestrian and bike mobility connecting to Hembree Park. The project is under construction and is being managed by Georgia DOT. As of June 2016, GDOT's contractor is beginning general construction. Expect periodic lane closure, mostly during mid-day. Construction is expected to last for approximately 12 months, weather permitting.
Intersection ClosureFriday, March 31, 2017 at 8:00 PM to Monday, April 3, 2017 at 5:00 AM
Variable Message Boards were placed on site Friday March 10th with the advanced notice of the closure. Detour will be in place with all the required signage directing traffic in the area. Traffic will be detoured using SR9, SR92, and Rucker Road. The City of Roswell will coordinate with Local Police, Fire, first responders, etc. This closure is needed for stage construction to shift traffic onto the new roadway of the partially completed round-a-bout. Hembree Road traffic will be shifted to the North of the existing roadway. SR140 (Houze Road) traffic will be shifted to the East of the existing roadway.

SR 400 Southbound Off-ramp and On-ramp ImprovementThis Georgia DOT funded traffic operational improvement will add a second right-turn lane from the southbound State Route (SR) 400 exit ramp onto westbound Holcomb Bridge Road. The southbound on-ramp shoulder will be improved and the existing median will be extended by approximately 150 feet. The project will also modify the small concrete island at Westbound SR 140/Holcomb Bridge Road and Old Dogwood Road (entrance to Waffle House) to convert the rightmost lane from a right turn only lane into a shared through/right-turn lane. Crews will be working at various times during the day and night, however it is anticipated lane closures will only occur during overnight hours (9pm-5am). GDOT has let the project and construction began in late October (2016). The expected completion of this project is Spring 2017.
Sun Valley Extension Phase 1BThis project will connect the Warsaw Road Extension and Sun Valley Road providing a new connection between Alpharetta Highway/SR 9 and Mansell Road. Phase 1A of the project was completed in the fall of 2016 and included earthwork, the installation of culverts, the construction of a retention pond and the grading of the road foundation. Phase 1B is set to begin February 7th, 2017 and will include the paving of the road, construction of sidewalks and a multi-use path and the installation of a roundabout at the southern end of the project. Work is expected to be completed by February 7, 2018.
Grove Way/Bush Street ImprovementThis project will construct a new water line, add a 5 foot sidewalk and reconstruct the intersection of the two streets by lowering the sight obstructing hill by 6 feet and widening the intersection. The new intersecting streets will improve visibility and safety by providing critical access to the non-profit community facilities of the CDA, Pleasant Hill Baptist Church, Roswell Housing Authority and the Veranda housing project. Work is expected to be completed by September 2017.
Citywide ResurfacingThe resurfacing list is based on the annual road rating program using MicroPaver Software. Some roads in good condition will be rejuvenated in order to extend their life in a cost-effective manner. Also, be aware that traffic signal detection equipment is disconnected during resurfacing.
Public Works Projects
Goulding Place ConstructionThe City of Roswell Water and Storm Water Divisions are beginning a new paver project on Goulding Place. This is a permeable paver project intended to improve water quality and enhance storm water drainage. The Goulding Place project will start on the east end near Canton Street and end 650 feet further west on Goulding Place.
The contractor is scheduled to begin preliminary work activities on or about February 16 with, some limited tree removal, and clearing the roadway shoulders on Goulding Place. The contractor plans to start utility work (in the roadway) the week of February 20, including moving water services. It is anticipated water service to homes may be briefly interrupted during construction and will likely only impact one home at a time. The contractor will notify affected homeowners in advance and will attempt to schedule any needed disruptions during off-peak times. While the utility work is going on, a travel lane will be open for vehicles and residents to navigate around the construction.
Weather permitting, on or about March 1, 2017 the contractor will start the demolition of the road-way on Goulding Place, starting on the eastern end near Canton Street. Goulding Place will be closed to thru traffic for several weeks at the eastern intersection at Canton Street. Traffic on Canton Street will not be affected. The contractor will have a detour in place to help the residents navigate to Thompson Place via Windy Pines Trail. This will allow residents to access Canton Street by vehicle.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of May 2017.
