Holcomb Bridge repaving project delayed in Roswell

The resurfacing of Holcomb Bridge Road (Ga. 140) in Roswell, previously announced to begin Monday, has been postponed until after the Labor Day holiday, the Georgia Department of Transportation said.

The work and related overnight lane closures are now tentatively scheduled to start on or about Tuesday, Sept. 3, GDOT said. Roughly 6.7 miles of Holcomb Bridge will be resurfaced from just east of Alpharetta Highway (Ga. 9) to the Gwinnett County line.

Work is planned from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m., seven days a week, weather permitting, GDOT said. Initially, crews will be patching and lowering manholes. “Rolling” lane closures are planned; as crews finish in one location, lane closures will “roll” to the next work location.

“Roadway signs and message boards along the road will alert drivers of the closures in advance,” GDOT said. “Motorists are advised to plan alternate routes to their destinations and/or allow extra travel time for traffic delays.”

The project is expected to be completed in late February, 2020.
