New Roundabout to be Built on Old Alabama Road in Roswell

Roswell has one roundabout (Grimes Br. Rd./Warsaw Rd. pictured) completed several years ago with another nearing completion on Houze Road and now drivers in East Roswell on Old Alabama Road south of Holcomb Bridge Road will start to notice a new road construction project in the coming weeks.

Local developers, in coordination with the City of Roswell, will be starting work on a multi-lane roundabout on Old Alabama Road near the new Riverwalk townhome development between Riverside Drive and Market Boulevard. The new roundabout will be part of the entrance to the development, which will be built over the next four to six months.

The contractor will be adding pavement and concrete islands for the roundabout at this location during off-peak hours (9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.) to minimize impacts to traffic. There will be temporary lane closures during certain phases of construction, so motorist are strongly encouraged to be alert and use caution while traveling through the construction zone.

Drivers should expect new traffic patterns to go into effect as the project nears completion this winter (2017/2018), weather permitting.
