Reversible lanes along Atlanta Street are to be replaced with a four-lane “complete street” with multi-lane roundabouts. Roswell is working with the Georgia Department of Transportation; the city is responsible for engineering, while the state will handle land acquisitions, easements and construction, officials said.
“As of late 2018, Georgia DOT is in the beginning stages of right-ofway acquisition, which is expected to take 24 months,” according to a city announcement. “Construction is scheduled to begin in 2021, provided there is adequate state funding.”
Work will be funded by the Transportation Special Purpose Local OptionSales Tax approved by Fulton County voters outside Atlanta in November, 2016.
