Holcomb Bridge Road at Old Dogwood Road Median
This project consists of installing a new 2-foot wide raised concrete median on Holcomb Bridge Road (SR 140) between the intersections of Old Dogwood Road and the GA 400 southbound on-ramp. The new median will be constructed between the Holcomb Bridge Road eastbound through lanes and the dual right turn lanes approaching the GA 400 southbound on-ramp. Construction is now underway and is anticipated to be completed in November.
SR 400 Southbound Off-ramp and On-ramp Improvement
This 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 is letting the project and construction is anticipated to begin on October 23rd. The expected completion of this project is Spring 2017.
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.
Citywide ResurfacingResurfacing of selected surface streets for locally funded projects in 2016 has been completed. Also, be aware that traffic signal detection equipment is disconnected during resurfacing.
Preventive Maintenance / Asphalt Paving Rejuvenator ApplicationThe streets listed below will be treated with a penetrating asphalt rejuvenator. This is a quick setting application that will extend the life of our roads in an economical way while causing minimal inconvenience to residents and the traveling public. A truck will spray the rejuvenator and a fine layer of sand will then be applied to the treated surface. Please use caution when driving on loose sand. The sand will be sweep once the product has sufficiently penetrated the road surface. A professional contractor has been selected to perform this work and a City of Roswell Transportation Department inspector will be on site monitoring the work to ensure specifications compliance and adequate traffic control.
This work is done with the goal of extending the life-cycle of the road which in the long run will save tax dollars by delaying the need to perform more expensive work. Premature oxidation can accelerate the developing of distresses in our roads which can develop into cracks and eventually potholes. By properly maintaining the road surface with rejuvenators more expensive repaving can be delayed.
ScheduleThe work began in late September and will continue into October as weather conditions allow. On the scheduled day traffic on the affected streets will be restricted and controlled by flaggers, which will result in some travel delays. Daily work will not start before 9 AM and will be completed before 4 PM. The product is applied as a liquid and typically requires less than 60 minutes before is ready for traffic. If your street is being treated, you should receive a door hanger with additional information prior to the work being performed.
