ALPHARETTA, Ga. – The Alpharetta City Council agreed to sign a contract with the state to complete a link between two parts of the Greenway.

The costs of the construction is split between Alpharetta and the Georgia Department of Transportation. The state agency will pay $800,000, with Alpharetta paying $200,000.

“We are wrapping up designs and right of way for the traffic enhancement contract,” said Day.

She said the city hopes to complete the connection by the end of the year.
