Johns Creek motorists may experience delays on Medlock Bridge Road starting the week of September 1 as construction crews begin extending the southbound right turn lane between State Bridge Road and Old Alabama Road and a northbound turn lane onto Medlock Crossing Parkway.
During construction, adjoining lanes may be closed intermittently. Work, which will run from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. weekdays, is expected to be completed in February. However, lane closures will not be allowed during peak rush hours from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. and from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The right-turn lane extension on Medlock Bridge Road from Medlock Crossing Parkway to State Bridge Road will allow patrons of Medlock Crossing shopping center easier entrance and exit. The project will also help relieve heavy southbound traffic on Medlock Bridge Road by allowing motorists intending to turn on Old Alabama Road to get out of the flow of traffic earlier.
The overall, months-long project also includes extending the northbound left-turn lane from Medlock Bridge Road onto Medlock Crossing Parkway. Extending the lane will accommodate more vehicles, alleviating backed-up traffic in the adjacent northbound through lane.
