Johns Creek Tunnel Mural to feature color changing lights

September 05, 2018

TunnelColor-changing lights will be added to the Johns Creek Tunnel this weekend, as part of the Johns Creek Convention & Visitors Bureau’s (CVB) project to enhance the pedestrian underpass beneath Medlock Bridge Road (141). 

The east entrance of the tunnel is located near street address 11695 Medlock Bridge Road, just south of the 141/McGinnis Ferry Road intersection.

The color-changing lights will be visible after dark starting on Saturday, Sept. 8, and will change color throughout the year.

“The color-changing lights give us a unique attraction we can market year-round,” said Lynda Smith, JCCVB Chairwoman. Illuminated by white LED lights during the day, the Johns Creek Tunnel will take on a different look after dark and has the ability to change colors throughout the year. “You might see orange on Halloween or red and green for the holidays. The colorful lights will give visitors a new perspective of the tunnel each time they walk though,” says Smith. 

Indian artist, Hanif Kureshi and dozens of local volunteers completed the Johns Creek Tunnel mural in April. The mural features overlapping geometric shapes that symbolize the geography of the City’s community areas, and Kureshi’s signature letterforms represent many of the languages spoken by Johns Creek residents.
