After Johns Creek connected a trail on Douglas Road with an Alpharetta trail last year, a newly opened trail along Kimball Bridge Road has also connected the two North Fulton cities.

The Kimball Bridge Trail begins at Kimball Bridge and Fox roads and connects to Webb Bridge Park, which is a popular recreation area for residents in northeastern Johns Creek.

On the Johns Creek city website, Public Works Director Tom Black says the quarter-mile-long, 8-foot-wide pathway also “ties into existing trails on Jones Bridge Road and on Sargent Road."

It cost about $137,000, or close to $105 per foot, to build this 10 foot wide concrete sidewalk. If we assume a 20-year lifespan for the sidewalk, it also represents a commitment of about $6,800/yr in perpetuity to maintain the sidewalk. As a community, we need to make use of this sidewalk to show it was a wise investment of city funds. It would be nice if an Eagle Scout or Johns Creek Beautification could install some plantings to make the sidewalk more inviting and attractive. Now we need to work on connecting the Rogers Bridge Trail to Rogers Bridge Park in Duluth.
