Motorists advised to limit use of Barnwell Road during reuse line construction

November 21, 2017

BarnwellMotorists are advised to limit the use of Barnwell Road while Fulton County continues to perform construction of the Reuse Irrigation Main Line until the end of the year.
 
To help accelerate the construction process, Fulton County will  increase working hours, and close Barnwell Road to through traffic nightly between 9 p.m. – 6 a.m., and reduce the road to one lane between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m., beginning Monday, November 27, until the work is complete.  During the nightly road closure, Barnwell Road will remain accessible to residents who live in subdivisions and homes along the road.
 
With limited room available to perform construction work, periodic lane closures along this road are required to install the pipe and conduit, which will create significant congestion.
 
Motorists are also advised that, for added safety, Barnwell Road has a temporary speed limit reduction to 30 mph in the construction zone through the end of the project.
 
The new reuse line, which is being installed in several locations throughout Johns Creek, will be used for irrigation for churches, golf courses, and Cauley Creek park.
