Portions of two streets in Roswell will be closed for the next 10 months as the city, utility companies and contractors complete a street realignment project.
During construction, Bush Street will be closed from Pleasant Avenue to just past the intersection with Grove Way, and part of Grove Way will be closed from Bush Street to the end of the Child Development Association.
Work on the project began Monday, Aug. 7.
Detours are in place, and drivers who need to access the CDA can do so by approaching Grove Way westbound from Forrest Street.
The project lowers a vertical curve, widens Grove Way and Bush Street, and includes a sidewalk and a new waterline. The reconstruction will also “improve visibility and enables two-way traffic” which will allow more fire, emergency, and public access to businesses, offices and churches in the area, Roswell officials say.
Drivers can access Oak Street from Oxbo Road via Pleasant Hill Street or northbound Highway 9.
The project will be constructed by JHC Corporation and costs approximately $1.3 million. Funding for the construction is provided by the City of Roswell and through the Community Development Block Grant fund.
