Roswell re-starts Big Creek Parkway project

The Roswell City Council has voted to re-start the Big Creek Parkway project, paused last fall over concerns of managed lanes and MARTA bus rapid transit on Ga. 400.

The mayor and council have met with “appropriate officials” and concluded the proposed new road “integrates well with any future plans for managed lanes and bus rapid transit in the Ga. 400 interchange,” according to a resolution approved by the council.

The resolution authorizes the mayor to cooperate with the Georgia Department of Transportation and MARTA “to achieve the most economically advantageous transportation and transit improvements” for the area.

Big Creek, proposed to relieve congestion around the Holcomb Bridge Road/Ga. 400 interchange, would start at Warsaw Road just north of Holcomb Bridge, extend east across Ga. 400, connect with Holcomb Woods Parkway at Old Alabama Road, and end back at Holcomb Bridge.

The $58.5 million project would be among the biggest funded by the special transportation sales tax approved by Fulton County voters outside Atlanta in November 2016.
