City holds ribbon cutting for Parsons Road sidewalk project

August 03, 2018

Parsons Road Sidewalk ribbon cuttingThe City of Johns Creek held a ribbon cutting ceremony this morning to mark the completion of the Parsons Road sidewalk project.

Mayor Mike Bodker and City staff cut the ribbon along one of the five completed sections of sidewalk along Parsons Road.

The project closed a gap in the sidewalk network between Abbotts Bridge Road and Medlock Bridge Road. The 5-foot wide and 8-foot wide sidewalk segments are along an elementary school walking route, and improve overall safety and walkability in the area.

The project also includes a lighted crosswalk between Stonegrove Overlook and the bridge over Johns Creek.

 The Parsons Road sidewalk gaps were ranked numbers 4, 5, 16, 30 and 58 on the City Council-approved sidewalk priority list. The gaps have been grouped together as one project to complete a sidewalk network along Parsons Road. For more information regarding sidewalks, please view the sidewalk rankings and policy.
