Just in time for warmer weather, the city of Johns Creek is expected to wrap up its new sidewalk project along Morton Road by early summer.
The Johns Creek Public Works Department will also add a right-turn lane on Morton Road at its northern intersection at State Bridge Road. Morton Road east of Jones Bridge Road is horseshoe-shaped with two intersections at State Bridge Road.
The sidewalk length is about 4,300 feet and will fill in several gaps to create a continuous 2.3-mile path. This new sidewalk will allow all residents the ability to walk or run safely from neighborhood to neighborhood or to nearby commercial areas without having to venture out into the street.
The turn lane, which could be finished by late April, will improve the flow of traffic for motorists trying to leave the residential areas lining Morton Road.
Across State Bridge Road, Morton Road continues and swings north to Jones Bridge Road where a signal light is being added.
Weather permitting, the signal is scheduled to go online by early May. Turn lanes and sidewalks have already been added at Morton and Jones Bridge roads.
