More public meetings are slated for the future so local residents can have their input.
Though the process of looking into the feasibility of Big Creek Parkway is well underway, an exact proposal and its potential impact on local residents is still yet to be seen. "We are still very early in this process, but, yes, there will likely be some impacts," Roswell Transportation Director Steve Acenbrak told Patch. If completed, the two-lane parkway would divert traffic from the interchange of Ga 400 at Holcomb Bridge Road. But since the area is already heavily developed, to build the parkway means something else has to go. Right now, proposed alignments for the parkway show it could go through areas that currently consist of single-family homes at Liberty Square and apartments along Warsaw Road and Ga 400. "During the past five …

A public workshop will be held at the Doubletree Hotel in Roswell.
Roswell will host a community workshop next week on the Big Creek Parkway. City staff and consultants will discuss the conceptual plans for the project, after which residents, business owners and other community stakeholders are invited to review and comment on the designs. The next public meeting will take place: The goal of the Big Creek Parkway Project is to provide a new connection between the eastern and western parts of the City of Roswell and to relieve the high level of local traffic congestion along SR 140/Holcomb Bridge Road in the vicinity of SR 400.

The $35,000 approved by the CID helps Roswell leverage its own matching funds with $280,000 from state and federal funding.
Friday, January 11
The North Fulton Community Improvement District (CID) put $35,000 in the pot to help fund part of the Big Creek Parkway planning study in Roswell. The roadway is intended to help alleviate local traffic congestion and provide better connectivity between the eastern and western portions of the city. The Big Creek Bridge Road Corridor Study begun in 2010 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. Final Holcomb Bridge Road Corridor Study Meeting Scheduled – June 2012 Holcomb Bridge Road Corridor Study Kicks Off – August 2011 At its January board meeting, the CID approved $35,000 to help fund phases three and four …

The city unveiled plans Wednesday for Big Creek Parkway, a two-lane road that is expected to divert traffic from the interchange of 400 at Holcomb Bridge Road.
If it’s rush hour, you probably want to avoid Holcomb Bridge Road at all costs. A proposed new road could allow you to do just that, in the area around 400. On Wednesday night, city officials brought out a design for Big Creek Parkway, which would run parallel to Holcomb Bridge and divert local traffic for about 2 miles. The idea is to relieve some of the congestion around 400. But there were plenty of concerns from neighborhood residents who turned out to a public workshop at Mimosa Elementary. Several people complained that traffic is already a problem on Warsaw Road. During evening rush hour, cars waiting for the light to turn at Holcomb Bridge can sit through several lights. And the traffic can back up as far Mimosa Elementary, a half …

The city of Roswell will host a Big Creek Parkway community workshop Wednesday evening to go over the potential for a new roadway that would help alleviate local traffic congestion and provide better connectivity between the eastern and western portions of the city. The proposed project is a new roadway from Warsaw Road just north of Holcomb Bridge Road, extending to the east across SR 400 (with a bridge) between the Holcomb Bridge Road and Mansell Road interchanges. The new road would then connect to the existing intersection of Old Alabama Road and Holcomb Woods Parkway and end at Holcomb Bridge Road. The proposed roadway would include a sidewalk and bicycle path to make walking and biking more convenient in the area. There is no access…
