Oxbo closed for construction at Ga. 9 in Roswell

A portion of Oxbo Road in Roswell is closed for about two months as part of a project to realign the street where it crosses Atlanta Road (Ga. 9) in the historic downtown area, according to a city announcement.

Oxbo is closed between Ga. 9 and Pleasant Hill Street, the city said. Detour signage is in place, directing westbound motorists on Oxbo to turn north on Pleasant Hill to get around the construction.

“Drivers can expect delays especially during peak driving hours and are encouraged to take alternate routes,” the city said. “This closure is designed to take advantage of the current unusually low traffic volumes and to expedite the project’s completion. The entire project is expected to take approximately 18 months.”

The TSPLOST-funded work will eliminate the staggered intersection of Oxbo at Ga. 9 and convert Oxbo into a two-way street between Ga. 9 and Mimosa Boulevard. New turning lanes and traffic signals will be added at the Ga. 9 intersection, and Elm Street will be extended north to Oxbo. Information: https://bit.ly/3bAdwDj
