Roswell to Hold Meeting on Historic Gateway Project

Roswell to Hold Meeting on Historic Gateway Project

ROSWELL, GA -- The public is invited to attend an informational meeting on the City of Roswell's Historic Gateway Project on Thursday, Mar. 3 at 5:30 p.m. at Founders Square (555 South Atlanta Street, Suites A-100 & A-200, 30075).

The project's primary goal is to make multimodal transportation and safety improvements along the Atlanta Street corridor; this will include the removal of the outdated reversible lane system.

A secondary aim is to improve operations and safety at the intersection of Atlanta Road and Riverside Road/Azalea Drive. This project will also increase the economic vitality of the area.

Ultimately, the project will examine a number of concepts and alternatives, and develop a solution that best meets the needs of people who rely on the Atlanta Street corridor every day.

The Roads are Open; We Have Your Traffic Information at 11Alive.com

All the roads in Metro Atlanta are open today. You need to pack a huge load of patience while you get going though. There are many delays out there. For details on particular routes, check http://11alive.com/traffic.

ALL INTERSTATES & MAIN ROUTES are open.

The left lanes have ice in them. Stay out of those left lanes. Assume that all overpasses have ice on them; many have glaze ice that you will not be able to see until you are on them.

ALL of the on and off ramps have ice in them. Approach them slowly and carefully. If you speed onto an offramp or try to turn suddenly, you will slide and crash.

ARTERIAL/MAIN STREETS --

All have some ice on them. Most with three lanes ordinarily are down to two; most with two lanes regularly, are down to one lane.

Transportation Improvements in Roswell Historic District

Transportation Improvements in Roswell Historic District

ROSWELL, GA -- The Roswell Department of Transportation (RDOT) will be making a number of transportation improvements in the Historic District along Canton Street in the new year.

On Friday, Jan. 7, the direction of Plum Street (between Green Street and Canton Street) will reverse and become a one-way eastbound lane. This will increase business visibility for merchants on Green Street and help to improve circulation in the area.

A pilot pedestrian safety program will be added to the crosswalk near the Fickle Pickle (1085 Canton Street).

This program, called "Take It to Make It," has been launched successfully in other cities around the country.

Roswell Reversible Lane System Undergoes Changes

ROSWELL, GA -- The Georgia Department of Transportation recently replaced the reversible lane signals on Atlanta Street (SR 9) between Riverside Road/Azalea Drive and Marietta Highway (SR 120).

On Wednesday, Sept. 22, the use and timing of the middle lane changed.

The Roswell Transportation Department changed the use of the center lane to red Xs in both directions to make it safer. The new timing sequence for the center lane is:

* 1:00 a.m. to 5:00 a.m. -- red Xs both directions; no travel
* 5:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. -- open southbound
* 11:00 a.m. to 11:05 a.m. -- red Xs both directions; no travel
* 11:05 a.m. to 1:00 a.m. -- open northbound

Using existing poles, all of the wiring and lane control signals were replaced, and new controllers were installed.
