ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The North Fulton Community Improvement District (CID) approved $35,000 to help fund phases three and four of the Big Creek Parkway planning study.

The Big Creek Parkway is part of the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Transportation Improvement Plan (TIP), which lists needed road projects around the region and prioritizes them for support.

The entire planning study costs $350,000 and will be paid for with a $280,000 federal/state commitment. The city of Roswell and the CID have both agreed to contribute $35,000 each, totaling a $70,000 local match.

Phases three and four were identified in an earlier Big Creek Bridge Road Corridor Study that took place in 2010.

The study will evaluate two north-south roadways parallel to Ga. 400 that would connect Holcomb Bridge Road at Davis Circle on the west, and at North Point Parkway on the east side. A public meeting on the Big Creek Parkway Bridge was held in August 2012 to unveil plans for the proposed two-lane roadway.
