Barnwell Road at Holcomb Bridge Road

Latest update (Nov. 3, 2023):


Barnwell Reopens

One week ahead of schedule, Barnwell Road has REOPENED this afternoon (Friday, Nov. 3, 2023). Crews have completed the paving work that required the road to be closed at its intersection with Holcomb Bridge Road.

While the road has reopened, motorists can expect intermittent lane closures to allow for temporary striping, traffic signal upgrades, sidewalk construction, guardrail installation, and paving operations during the next few weeks. Please use caution in the area.
The temporary traffic signal at the Rivermont Parkway and Nesbit Ferry Road intersection will be removed early next week. The detour signage will also be turned off and/or removed.
The intersection improvement project is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

Creekside Park Phase 1 Trail project

Construction Project Progress: Crews have completed clearing and grading work, and poured the new sidewalk trail as part of the Creekside Park Phase 1 trail project.

The project creates a trail connection from Medlock Bridge Road to the interior of Creekside Park adjacent to the Hyatt Place Hotel near City Hall within the Johns Creek.

Crews will continue to landscape, install a handrail on the stairs, add a crosswalk and stop bar in the roadway near the trail, and remove and replace a light pole.

This trail connection project represents the first phase of Creekside Park construction and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.

It also amplifies the City’s commitment to pedestrian connectivity in the Town Center area. It’s also an opportunity for incorporating a healthy lifestyle and improved quality of life in our community, which is emerging as a leader in health, wellness, and innovation.

Latest update (Sept. 29, 2023):

Construction Project Progress: Crews have completed most of the bio-retention and drainage projects as part of the Medlock Bridge Road at Johns Creek Parkway intersection improvement project, which serves as one of the gateways leading into the Johns Creek Town Center area. 

Construction continues on the curb, gutter, retaining wall, and sidewalk. The sidewalk will eventually tie into Creekside Park, which is located north of the intersection on the east side of Medlock Bridge Road. Construction began last week on the first phase of Creekside Park, which includes a trail connection from Medlock Bridge Road to the interior of Creekside Park adjacent to the Hyatt Place Hotel.

Throughout the next several weeks, crews will work on the intersection widening, traffic signal upgrades, and guardrail.  The project is expected to be complete in 2024.

Latest Update: Ot. 26, 2023
The Brumbelow Road High-Intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) light project is now complete!  Mayor John Bradberry, City staff, Recreation & Parks Advisory Committee members, and Mount Pisgah Christian School staff and students marked the project completion with a ribbon cutting ceremony this week. The HAWK beacon project on Brumbelow Road provides a safe, signalized, mid-block pedestrian crossing from the Mount Pisgah Athletic Campus to Newtown Park. The project included a new mast arm pole with overhead beacons, pedestrian-activated push buttons and ADA-compliant ramps on both sides of the road, as well as a pedestrian path to provide access from the ramps and sidewalk to the park trail. 

Taylor Road Turn Lane

Taylor Road Turn Lane
Latest Update: (Aug. 3, 2023)
When students head back to Chattahoochee High School on Monday, Aug. 7, they’ll find a new left turn lane has been installed on Taylor Road. Since the groundbreaking in June, the City has worked diligently to get the project done for the start of school. The Taylor Road left turn lane project is important because by adding the capacity to queue vehicles, it removes turning vehicles from the travel lanes and relieves congestion for residents that live in the neighborhoods off Taylor Road who had been getting stuck in traffic behind students waiting to turn into school.
