The Johns Creek Public Works Department is scheduled to start widening Jones Bridge Road between Kimball Bridge and State Bridge roads in early March.
The project will widen Jones Bridge Road from two to four lanes, plus a center turn lane. It also includes adding a traffic signal at North Bridge shopping center, and a 6-foot sidewalk on the west side of Jones Bridge Road and a 10-foot-wide trail on the east side.
"This is part of an on-going effort by Public Works to improve Jones Bridge Road, which is one of our more heavily traveled roads," said Public Works Director Tom Black. "The improvements will make people's commutes smoother, and the sidewalks and trails will make it safer for people to walk and jog and enjoy the outdoors."
Motorists should anticipate occasional lane closures.
The project is expected to be completed around mid-fall.
The City has already made extensive improvements on Jones Bridge Road from Old Alabama to Waters Road, and between Douglas Road and Abbotts Bridge Road.
