Jones Bridge and Abbotts Bridge intersection complete!

The Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Harold Linnenkohl, Fulton County Chair Karen Handel and State Representative Mark Burkhalter of Alpharetta announced the opening of the Jones Bridge Road and Abbotts Bridge Road intersection October 20, 2006. The contractor, C.W. Matthews, worked hard to finish well before the revised schedule of June 30, 2007. During the next few days before the traffic control and equipment are removed, workers will install the permanent striping, activate the turn arrows and time the traffic signals. Motorists are urged to use caution as they become accustomed to the new traffic movements. While drivers will have full use of the intersection, there will still be minor work left as the contractor completes the final punch list. This is great news! Now let us hope that the intersection improvements at State Bridge Road and Jones Bridge Road finish early as well. I can see the day when our two mile, thirty minute trips that we now take in the area are slashed to only 25 minutes! Just joking (I hope). I am hopeful that traffic flow will be much improved. The local elected officials and local residents have done a super job staying on top of these projects and pushing them along. Thanks to all who helped and best wishes for stress free driving! Jeff
