Roswell OKs $635K in land buys for new road


The Roswell City Council has given the go-ahead to spending up to $635,000 to acre two land parcels totaling 55.3 acres for the Big Creek Parkway project.

The land acquisitions for the new road, among the first to be funded by the special transportation sales tax approved by voters in November 2016, involves right-of-way from Ga. 400 to existing Roswell city property east of the Roswell Creek Apartments.

First-phase construction is expected to begin in the summer of 2019. Plans call for a two-lane bridge over Ga. 400 with 4-foot bicycle lanes and a sidewalk on one side and a 10-foot-wide, multi-use path on the other, according to a staff report to the council.

According to a city website on the project, Big Creek Parkway would extend from Warsaw Road just north of Holcomb Bridge Road (Ga. 140), cross Ga. 400, connect with to the existing intersection of Old Alabama Road and Holcomb Woods Parkway, and end at Holcomb Bridge Road.
