Turn lane extensions coming to State Bridge Rd & Medlock bridge Rd

May 11, 2016

State Bridge & Medlock Bridge roadsThe City of Johns Creek is implementing plans to ease traffic flow from westbound State Bridge Road onto Medlock Bridge Road heading north and south.

Construction crews are extending the right-turn lane on State Bridge Road a quarter-mile by removing island barriers in the far right lane from Whole Foods to Medlock Bridge Road.

One striped island at Camden Way diverts traffic right toward apartment complexes and Riverwalk Marketplace, which includes Whole Foods. A concrete island farther west directs traffic into Medlock Corners, anchored by a Publix Super Market.

Plans also call for removing part of a median to extend a left turn lane from westbound State Bridge Road onto southbound Medlock Bridge Road. 

Lengthening the turn lane will accommodate more vehicles, which currently back up into the through lanes on State Bridge Road.

Construction has begun and is scheduled to be complete in mid-July.
