Kimbell Bridge and Buice Roads DedicationFollowing the critical injury of Chris Land, in October 2005 while riding his motorcycle at the intersection of Kimball Bridge and Buice Roads, the local community joined forces to make this intersection safer. On February 23 the efforts of the community were rewarded when the Fulton County Government, in conjunction with the Cities of Alpharetta and Johns Creek, held a dedication to commemorate the improved intersection.

  • Mayor of Alpharetta, Arthur Letchas
  • Mayor of Johns Creek, Mike Botker
