The Johns Creek City Council has approved a $340,000 task order to have its engineering consultant, Lowe Engineers, complete plans to widen Haynes Bridge Road from two to four lanes.

The council also approved an intergovernmental agreement with Alpharetta in which Johns Creek will manage the design, engineering and right-of-way acquisition phases of the project, and Alpharetta will reimburse Johns Creek half the costs.

The Haynes Bridge project, estimated to cost $10 million, extends from Old Alabama to Mansell roads. It is roughly half in Johns Creek and half in Alpharetta, “and the TSPLOST funds earmarked for the project mirror this split,” Johns Creek staff said in an agenda report.

Additionally, staff requested council authorization for $60,000 for specialty engineering studies such as geotechnical and subsurface utility engineering.
