Roswell issues stop-work order; Johns Creek votes to pull work permit application.
Potential construction of a traffic signal at Brumbelow and Nesbit Ferry roads on the Johns Creek-Roswell border has seemingly hit a final red light after several rounds of negotiating between the two cities. After numerous inquiries from Johns Creek residents, the city of Johns Creek had conducted studies and determined that the intersection needed a traffic light for safety purposes. Johns Creek had earmarked $200,000 for a traffic signal, but asked Roswell to consider paying for half, which Roswell ultimately declined to do. About two-thirds of the intersection at Nesbitt Ferry and Brumbelow roads is in Roswell, with the rest in the Johns Creek right-of-way. In July, Roswell had approved a permit allowing for installation of the signal…

A week after a last second, heart breaking loss to the Lambert Longhorns, the Roswell Hornets football team struggled to keep up with an explosive John's Creek running attack Friday night in their second non-region loss of the season.
At times Friday night, the Roswell Hornets team that defeated crosstown rival Centennial Knights with such ease just two weeks ago and the team that played last night were almost irreconcilable. Plagued by weak tackling and inconsistency on offense, the Hornets fell to the undefeated Johns Creek Gladiators by a score of 24-45. Lead by senior baseball and football stand out Skye Overton, Johns Creek ran right past an eager Roswell team Friday night. Gashing Roswell for a total of 335 yards on the ground alone, Johns Creek rattled off 45 points against a now seemingly slumped Roswell defense. Overton, who was anything but discreet on Twitter this week, set the pace of the game on the Gladiator’s first drive with a shocking 71-yard touchdown…

Johns Creek is sending a letter to Roswell to ask for help in cost of traffic signal on border.
The Johns Creek City Council on Monday approved a letter to be sent to Roswell city officials asking them to help in the cost of a traffic signal at a dangerous intersection. About two-thirds of the intersection at Nesbitt Ferry and Brumbelow roads is in Roswell, with the rest in the Johns Creek right-of-way. After numerous inquiries from Johns Creek residents, the city of Johns Creek conducted studies and determined that the intersection needs a traffic light for safety purposes. Johns Creek earmarked funds for the light – which will cost about $200,000 – following a budget surplus, but still would like Roswell to consider paying for half. The attached letter addressed to Roswell Mayor Jere Wood and Roswell's city council states that …
