The city of Roswell Department of Transportation will be holding two public information meetings later this month.

The Big Creek Parkway project meeting Jan. 21 will run from 5 to 7 p.m. at Mimosa Elementary School, located at 1550 Warsaw Road.

The Big Creek Parkway project is a key consideration in the long-range planning the city is undertaking to alleviate local traffic congestion and provide better connectivity between the eastern and western portions of the city.

The proposed project is a new roadway from Warsaw Road just north of Holcomb Bridge Road (Ga. 140), extending east across Ga. 400 between the Holcomb Bridge Road and Mansell Road interchanges. The new road would then connect to the existing intersection of Old Alabama Road and Holcomb Woods Parkway and end at Holcomb Bridge Road, and would include a sidewalk and bicycle path.

This project is a long-term project with no identified funding for right-of-way acquisition or construction at this time.

The East Roswell Park connectivity project meeting on Jan. 23 will run from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the East Roswell Recreation Center multi-purpose room at East Roswell Park, 9000 Fouts Road.

This project will provide alternate vehicular connectivity between Eves Road and East Roswell Park. A design has been developed for proposed connectivity improvements. The concept is 18 feet wide and about 600 feet long and will be on display at the meeting. This proposal was also shown during the two Eves Road Complete Street stakeholder and public input meetings in May 2012. Further input from the public is needed to make final design decisions.

The proposed concept and comment cards will be available to view at Roswell Department of Transportation, Suite 235, City Hall, 38 Hill St., Roswell and online at
