Roswell urges residents to take bridge aesthetics survey

Roswell officials are urging residents to fill out an online bridge aesthetics survey to guide planning for three new bridges over Ga. 400.

The survey concerns “aesthetic enhancements” – the styling, materials and finishes, such as stamped brick surfaces, stylized metal fencing, decorative lighting and landscaping, according to a city Facebook posting.

“These types of enhancements do not come standard on a bridge,” the posting said. The bridge projects “are truly generational, as Georgia (Department of Transportation) is rebuilding the entire Ga. 400 corridor. Our city has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to design bridges that reflect the character and desires of Roswell.”

The survey is due by 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13. To take it: www.surveymonkey.com/r/RoswellBridges

New bridges are planned for Big Creek Parkway, the Holcomb Bridge Road interchange, and the Ga. 400 Express Lane Bridge connecting Grimes Bridge and Old Alabama roads. Information: https://bit.ly/2Cqil2J
