Sun Valley Phase 1A ProjectThis is the first phase of a project to connect the existing Sun Valley Drive with the existing Warsaw Road. The project will grade an existing detention pond and provide two treatment cells within existing City property to enhance water quality and detention for the surrounding area before the water reaches Foe Killer Creek. The project will also construct a double 8’ x 8’ culvert carrying a creek under the proposed Sun Valley Drive connection. This initial phase construction is expected to be completed in September.
Houze Road (SR 140) at Hembree Road Roundabout
This 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.
Pedestrian Hybrid Beacon at Alpharetta Street (SR 9) and Thomas Drive/Strickland Road
A new “HAWK” (High-Intensity Activated CrossWalK) pedestrian signal is being installed in front of the new Vickery Mill Elementary School on State Highway 9/Alpharetta Street at Thomas Drive/Strickland Road. A HAWK signal is a next-generation pedestrian signal that has proven to increase safety for pedestrians while reducing the amount of delay for vehicle traffic. Once activated by a pedestrian seeking to cross, the HAWK signal illuminates a sequence of yellow and red lights for vehicles to yield to pedestrians using the crosswalk. It is anticipated the City of Roswell’s first HAWK signal on Highway 9 will be activated by Monday, September 19.

Resurfacing 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.
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 expected to begin in the Fall of 2016.
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. It is anticipated the majority of the work will be done during off-peak hours. GDOT is letting the project and construction is anticipated to begin by October.
