T-SPLOST: An Overview
On November 8, 2016, Fulton County voters approved the Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) referendum to fund transportation projects in their cities. In the City of Roswell, the measure passed 53.75% to 46.25%. Countywide the measure passed 52.80% to 47.20%. T-SPLOST will bring in an estimated $93 million to the City of Roswell for transportation improvements. Beginning in April 2017, a 0.75% (3/4 of a cent) sales tax will be collected to fund transportation projects specifically recommended by each Fulton County city.
Design and partial funding for ROW (right of way) and construction for projects from the Holcomb Bridge Road Corridor Study, possibly including reconstruction of the bridges over SR 400 and other projects in coordination with GDOT. (20% Contingency)
Enhancements to reconstruction of SR 9 from the Chattahoochee River north to Historic Roswell, such as underground utilities, improved lighting, connections to the National Park Service, and design costs for the enhancements. (0% Contingency) Sandy Springs is proposing to help fund with a portion of their TSPLOST list. The majority of funding for this project is anticipated to come from State and Federal funds.
Redesign of the intersection of Oxbo Road and SR 9 creating a full intersection and at SR 9 south of the existing intersection. The project also includes linking of Pleasant Hill and Elm Streets. (20% Contingency)
General sidewalk repair and gap filling based on the sidewalk prioritization inventory conducted in 2015. Priorities include connecting residential, commercial, and civic uses and completing gaps in heavily traveled areas. Where applicable, also includes construction of complete streets along corridors of the Roswell Loop.

General intersection and corridor improvements, including geometric redesign, reconstruction of corridors as complete streets, mini-roundabouts and full roundabouts. Specific corridors under consideration include but are not limited to Nesbit Ferry Road, enhancements to Old Alabama Road (in conjunction with GDOT), and the Myrtle Street extension.
