Roswell DOT’s Historic Gateway Project Receives Award
The city was evaluated on four criteria, including successful public participation.
The Roswell Department of Transportation was awarded a Preconstruction Design Award for its Historic Gateway project from the Georgia Partnership for Transportation Quality (GPTQ) at the end of 2012.
The annual GPTQ awards recognize transportation projects in the state of Georgia in nine different categories. Roswell was selected as the winner of the “Context Sensitive Design Including Public Participation Plan” category, which evaluated projects on four criteria:
1) Successfully encouraging public participation
2) Facilitating cooperative input from reviewing agencies
3) Coordinating planning with local interests
4) Developing solutions to avoid and minimize impacts
Historic Gateway is Roswell’s initiative to remove the reversible lanes along SR 9 from the Chattahoochee River to SR 120. Extensive public involvement and concept design have been underway for the past two years.
Last year was the third year in a row that Roswell DOT has won a GPTQ award.
