What do you think about widening Ga. 120/ Abbotts Bridge Road?

The completion of Cobb County's first roundabout at the intersection of Villa Rica and West Sandtown roads occurred in November 2008. The roundabout -- a British import -- has been slow to catch on in the U.S., but already dozens of metro Atlanta cities and counties have have begun building them to improve flow on congested streets.

Hey, North Fultonites – how do you feel about widening Abbotts Bridge Road? That’s what the Georgia Department of Transportation wants to know.

They’re conducting a public open house on Thursday for city of Johns Creek and Duluth residents to learn about a plan to widen Abbots Bridge Road from two to four lanes. The proposed widening would start at Ga. 141/ Medlock Bridge Road and end at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

The project would include construction of sidewalks and bike lanes, in addition to putting in a roundabout at Parsons Road and Wilson Road.

The informal open house is from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at Johns Creek City Hall at 12000 Findley Road. The public can ask questions and leave comments.
