(Also, see “Roswell Bike Infrastructure” map below)
The following is the list of upcoming infrastructure projects in Roswell:
Sun Valley Extension, Phase 1 (Underway)
This is the first phase of a project to connect the existing Sun Valley Drive with the existing Warsaw Road. Other proposed improvements consist of a multi-use trail, sidewalk, bike lanes, pedestrian crossings and intersection improvements. This initial phase construction is underway and is expected to be completed by early 2018.
Houze Road (SR 140) / Hembree Road Roundabout (Underway)
This project will construct a roundabout at Houze Road (SR 140) and Hembree Road and will include a multi-use path connection to the existing Hembree Road multi-use path to the east and a stub to the west for a future connection. Construction is underway and is anticipated to be done by the end of 2017.
Hardscrabble Road Green Loop (Upcoming)
This Complete Street project will provide a 10-foot multi-use path, 4 -foot bicycle lanes, and a 5-foot sidewalk along the Hardscrabble Road corridor from the Roswell High School entrance to the entrance of Sweet Apple Elementary School. Construction for Hardscrabble is anticipated to begin in 2017.
Chattahoochee River Pedestrian Bridge (Planned)
This project will add a new 12-foot wide multi-use pedestrian bridge adjacent to the existing northbound SR 9 bridge over the Chattahoochee River. The bridge will connect to the existing Riverfront Trail in Roswell and sidewalks in Sandy Springs. This project is still in the planning stages, and cost estimates are still being developed.
Big Creek Parkway (Planned)
This project will construct a new Complete Street Roadway from Warsaw Road near Worthington Hills Drive across and over SR 400 connecting to Holcomb Woods Parkway at Old Alabama Road. Improvements to Warsaw Road south to Holcomb Bridge Road (SR 140) and Holcomb Woods Parkway to Holcomb Bridge Road (SR 140) are also included. It is anticipated the roadway will include bike lanes and a multi-use path on the roadway. This project is funded by TSPLOST and is currently in the design phase.
Rucker Road Upgrade (Planned)
This joint project with Alpharetta would reconstruct Rucker Road with a multi-use path and sidewalks from SR 140/Houze Road eastward into Alpharetta. Turn lane improvements along Rucker Rd. and intersection improvements at Houze Rd./SR 140 are also anticipated to be included in the final concept. This project is funded by TSPLOST and is currently in the planning phase.
Historic Gateway (SR 9) (Planned)
This project includes several elements to improve the SR 9 corridor from the Chattahoochee River to Marietta Highway (SR 120): Removal of the reversible lane and addition of a fourth travel lane, grade separation of Riverside Road/Azalea Drive intersection with SR 9, and replacement of the Riverside Road bridge. Other proposed improvements consist of a multi-use trail, sidewalk, bike lanes, pedestrian crossings and intersection improvements. The project also includes two roundabouts: one at the Chattahoochee
Street/SR 9 intersection and the other at the Jones Circle/SR 9 intersection. TSPLOST is funding a portion of the project and includes enhancements to the project including streetscapes and possible extra utility relocation. The primary funding for constructing the project are still unidentified but may be provided by Federal or State resources. This project is still in the design phase as it continues to navigate the complex environmental process.
