Roswell finishes Hembree Road multi-use trail


Ribbon-cutting ceremony April 25


April 25, 2013
ROSWELL, Ga. To celebrate the completion of the Hembree Road multi-use trail, Roswell will hold a ribbon-cutting event April 25, at 10 a.m. in front of Hembree Springs Elementary on Hembree Road. Parking in the lower lot is preferred for attendees.

The new multi-use trail connects Hembree Grove and other residential subdivisions along Upper Hembree Road to the elementary and middle schools on Hembree and Elkins Roads as well as Hembree Park.

The project replaced existing 5-foot sidewalks on the south side of Hembree Road with a multi-purpose path that is 8-10 feet wide — totaling 2,500 linear feet. Additionally, a pedestrian crosswalk, ramps and signals at two intersections were upgraded. Nuttall oak trees now line the path, which will add to the Roswell Loop, a system of multi-use paths and bicycle facilities connecting the city of Roswell.

Designed by Clark Patterson Lee and constructed and landscaped by Johnson Landscaping DBA Vertical Earth, the project was funded through MARTA offset funds in addition to local sidewalk connectivity funding. Construction began November 2012 and was completed in late March 2013. Three historic barns were relocated from the south side of Hembree Road in 2011 as part of this project.
