Johns Creek advances Bell Road projects

The Johns Creek City Council has authorized spending up to $755,000 to move three Bell Road projects to the right-of-way acquisition phase.

Improvements are planned for Bell at Medlock Bridge and McGinnis Ferry roads and at Rogers Circle South, Public Works Director Lynette Baker said in an agenda report to the council. The work is part of planned improvements in the Bell/Boles Roads Corridor funded by the TSPLOST approved by voters in November 2016.

At Medlock Bridge, plans call for adding westbound dual left-turn lanes on Bell and extending a southbound left-turn lane on Medlock Bridge; at McGinnis Ferry, extending the northbound right-turn lane on Bell and adding through lanes on McGinnis Ferry; and at Rogers Circle, creating a single-lane roundabout and sidewalk extension.

Community meetings on the three projects have been held, Baker said. No specific concerns or objections were made for the first two projects, and residents responded positively to the proposed Rogers Circle improvements. Information:
