Notice is hereby given in compliance with Georgia Code 22-2-109 and 32-3-5 that the Georgia Department of Transportation has approved the Location and Design of these projects.
The date of location approval is November 14, 2013.
The purpose of this project is to widen Encore Parkway from Westside Parkway to North Point Parkway. The new widening section will include two 12 ft travel lanes with 2 offset foot buffer, two 6 ft bike lanes, and a raised median that will vary from 8 ft to 30 ft and include left turn lanes. The proposed shoulders from Westside Parkway to North Point Parkway will be widened to 18 ft and will include a 6 ft buffer planter strip and an 8 ft sidewalk. In addition to Encore Parkway improvements, an 8-ft sidewalk will be constructed along the East side of North Point Parkway and shared lanes or sharrows will be used on North Point Parkway to connect the new Encore Parkway sidewalks and bike lanes to the existing Big Creek Greenway trail and parking area. The existing Encore Parkway bridge over SR 400 will be replaced and ungraded to accommodate future SR 400 widening. The project will provide signal upgrades and signal timing and will also include installing streetscape features such as street trees and landscaping, street and pedestrian lighting, and street furniture on both the roadway and bridge sections.
Both projects are 100% in Fulton County in Land Lots 653, 687, 688 & 702.
