Duluth will add lighting option to Rogers Bridge design

In an effort to respond to comments made by GDOT, the Duluth City Council has agreed to include additional safety features as part of the Rogers Bridge Rehabilitation Project.

Currently, the joint project between Duluth, Johns Creek, Fulton and Gwinnett counties anticipates allowing bridge access across the Chattahoochee River during daylight hours. In response to GDOT’s concerns, the city will adapt the bridge design to add infrastructure and include conduits for future lighting in case both cities decide to add evening/nighttime events.

The Rogers Bridge project will create a link between Duluth and Johns Creek by rehabilitating the bridge for bicycle and pedestrian access to Rogers Bridge Park in Duluth and the future Cauley Creek Park in Johns Creek. The project will also allow greater access to public spaces and parkland along the Chattahoochee River, access to the Western Gwinnett Bikeway, and provide multi‐jurisdictional bicycle and pedestrian connectivity to Fulton, Gwinnett and surrounding areas.
