A major state highway in Johns Creek will soon undergo resurfacing.
Weather permitting, the Georgia Department of Transportation will begin resurfacing the 4.2 mile stretch of Abbotts Bridge Road in Johns Creek on Monday, March 24.
The project is slated to take about six weeks to complete. Contractor C.W. Matthews plans to start work at the Chattahoochee River and work its way westward. Work will be done between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. to minimize any interruption on traffic flow.
However, traffic will be narrowed to one lane where the work will be done and flagmen and pilot cars will be used to control the flow of traffic. The $1.26 million project is funded with federal and state funds.
Concurrently, the Johns Creek Public Works Department is adding five-foot-wide sidewalks and a 370-foot-long boardwalk on the south side of Abbotts Bridge Road from Lorna Way to Aylesbury Farm.
These improvements are the beginning of the city’s long-range improvement plans for Abbotts Bridge Road, which include widening and intersection enhancements.
An open house to discuss the long term plans was held in February and another is scheduled to be held sometime in May.
