The right-turn lane on Jones Bridge Road onto McGinnis Ferry Road in Johns Creek is now open, relieving a point of congestion for many people in the northern part of City.
The project adds 700 feet to the northbound, right-turn lane on Jones Bridge Road onto eastbound McGinnis Ferry Road. It also includes a 1,000-foot transition lane on McGinnis Ferry Road to allow motorists time to ease into the flow of traffic.
Motorists at this intersection were experiencing delays with through-traffic and right-turn traffic sharing a single lane. Extending the right turn lane on Jones Bridge Road at McGinnis Ferry Road allows more drivers to have better access to the turn lane and to clear the through lane.
Drivers should be alert for workers who remain on-site to finish remaining detail work on the project.
The project is being coordinated with Forsyth County, which is planning to widen Brookwood Road, which becomes Jones Bridge Road in Johns Creek, and McGinnis Ferry Road from just north of Sargent Road to Ga. 400, where the Georgia Department of Transportation will install a new interchange.
