The city of East Point and Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony to kick off the new Camp Creek Marketplace roundabout.

Camp Creek Marketplace roundabout to open Monday

Traffic improvements at Camp Creek Marketplace will soon be made available to commuters in the area, according to a press release. On Aug. 6 the city of East Point in partnership with the Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Camp Creek Marketplace Roundabout located at Marketplace Blvd and Shelby Lane.

Design of the roundabout began June 2017 through March 2018 with a design cost of $51,000. Construction began on June 18 and was scheduled to be completed on Aug. 1.

The cost of construction was split in half between the Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs and the city of East Point for a total of $359,540. The project design converted a two-way stop into a roundabout to increase the flow of traffic, increase safety, and reduce delays.

Further traffic improvements are coming in the spring of 2020 to install a traffic signal upgrade at North Commerce and Redwine.
