City will add light­ing op­tion to Rogers Bridge de­sign

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - KAREN HUPPERTZ FOR THE AJC

In an ef­fort to re­spond to com­ments made by GDOT, the Du­luth City Coun­cil has agreed to in­clude ad­di­tional safety fea­tures as part of the Rogers Bridge Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion Project.

Cur­rently, the joint project be­tween Du­luth, Johns Creek, Ful­ton and Gwin­nett coun­ties an­tic­i­pates al­low­ing bridge ac­cess across the Chat­ta­hoochee River dur­ing day­light hours. In re­sponse to GDOT’s con­cerns, the city will adapt the bridge de­sign to add in­fra­struc­ture and in­clude con­duits for fu­ture light- ing in case both cities de­cide to add evening/night­time events.

The Rogers Bridge project will cre­ate a link be­tween Du­luth and Johns Creek by re­ha­bil­i­tat­ing the bridge for bi­cy­cle and pedes­trian ac­cess to Rogers Bridge Park in Du­luth and the fu­ture Cauley Creek Park in Johns Creek. The project will also al­low greater ac­cess to pub­lic spa­ces and park­land along the Chat­ta­hoochee River, ac­cess to the Western Gwin­nett Bike­way, and pro­vide multi-ju­ris­dic­tional bi­cy­cle and pedes­trian con­nec­tiv­ity to Ful­ton, Gwin­nett and sur­round­ing ar­eas.
