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 April 2017, GDOT's contractor has realigned the roadway and is preparing for the installation of the roundabout this Summer. It is possible the roundabout will be operational while construction continues this Summer into the Fall, weather permitting. Expect periodic lane closures, mostly during mid-day or on weekends.
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 Summer 2017.
Sun Valley Extension Phase 1B
This 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 2018.
Grove Way/Bush Street Improvement
This 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 Fall of 2017.
Mansell Road Sidewalk Project
As part of the City of Roswell Sidewalk program, RDOT has begun work on building a new 1,500-foot-long sidewalk along Mansell Road in northeastern Roswell. East of Highway 400, Mansell Road is primarily in Alpharetta, but a short portion on Mansell Road near Big Creek and Big Creek Greenway is within Roswell city limits. This project will construct a new sidewalk on the south side of Mansell Road from the bridge over Big Creek (and Big Creek Greenway) to the existing sidewalk near Jardin Court (across from Waffle House). Work on the project will begin in late June and is expected to be completed later in July.
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 have recently begun 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 begins on the east end near Canton Street and ends 650 feet further west on Goulding Place.
The contractor began work in February that included some limited tree removal, clearing the roadway shoulders and utility work. 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.
The contractor started the demolition of the road-way in March and it is anticipated Goulding Place will be closed to thru traffic for several weeks at the eastern intersection at Canton Street. Traffic on Canton Street has not been affected. The contractor will continue to 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 June 2017.
