Roswell is asking residents for their aesthetic input on three bridges that will all be built within the next several years.
The city said this many large-scale infrastructure projects happening at once means “our city has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design bridges that reflect the character and desires of Roswell.”
Residents can voice thoughts on the Big Creek Parkway Bridge, Holcomb Bridge Road and the Ga. 400 Express Lane bridge connecting Grimes Bridge Road and Old Alabama Road.
Some of the projects sprouted from the Ga. 400 express lane negotiations with the state. The new interchange at Holcomb Bridge Road will cost at least $60 million, but the city negotiated to only chip in $15 million — less than the state originally asked for the project. Roadwork is needed in the congested area, leaders said, because it’s the city’s only access to Ga. 400 and sees 70,000 vehicles a day.
Those with thoughts on the look of the bridges can fill out a short survey at www.surveymonkey.com/r/RoswellBridges until Wednesday at 5 p.m.
