Grimes Bridge Road Roundabout Plans

grimes-bridge-roundabout

The City of Roswell’s Transportation Department will hold a public information open house where staff will be available to discuss the pending roundabout intersection improvements at the Grimes Bridge Road/Warsaw Road/Norcross Street intersection.

The meeting will be held on February 4, 2010 at 6:30 p.m. at the Adult Recreation Center located at 830 Grimes Bridge Road . The public is invited and encouraged to attend to review the improvements and discuss the roundabout with City staff.

The roundabout will allow the removal of the traffic signal and allow traffic to move freely and safely through the intersection. There is strong evidence from across the United States and in Georgia that confirms roundabouts:

  • reduce accidents and injury crashes
  • provide increased pedestrian and bicycle safety
  • reduced vehicle delay and fuel consumption
  • improve air quality by reduced vehicle idling
  • reduce electricity usage (by removing existing traffic signal) therefore less cost to the city
  • reduce road noise
  • provide a sustainable, aesthetically pleasing improvement

In terms of the Grimes Bridge/Warsaw/Norcross roundabout project, it is important to note that:

  • Modern roundabouts are safer than a traditional intersection with a traffic signal
  • No houses will be taken or demolished as a result of this project
  • No significant specimen trees will be removed or harmed due to this intersection improvement project
  • The construction of this project requires no road closures
  • The construction cost is estimated to be $950,000
