The project set to change the entire pedestrian flow of Hardscrabble Road is almost finished.
Crews have the road closed daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. for striping until Friday, the city said on Facebook.
“Drivers should expect heavier-than-usual congestion during these times, as there will be partial lane closures at multiple locations along the project. Flaggers will be present to direct traffic,” the city said.
The Hardscrabble Green Loop project, budgeted to cost the city about $5.8 million, began in October 2017. Crews built a path for walkers and bicycles along Hardscrabble between Roswell High School and Sweet Apple Elementary. There were also several traffic improvements, including a roundabout at Hardscrabble and Chaffin roads.
This is part of the larger Roswell Loop effort to connect all of the city’s parks and schools with sidewalks and trails.
There have been other funds spent on the Hardscrabble project, including in June when the Roswell City Council approved using $375,000 to get the project finished.
The city said it plans to cut the ribbon on the project following this striping portion, on July 31.
“We apologize for any inconvenience, but look forward to having this project completed for our community,” the city said.
