Encore Parkway Corridor Improvements

Start Date: 2011

Completion Date: 2017

Total CID Investment: $6,000,000.00

Partner: City of Alpharetta, Georgia Department of Transportation, Atlanta Regional Commission, State Road and Tollway Authority

This $17.9 Million project will widen the existing two-lane Encore Parkway between Westside Parkway and North Point Parkway, a distance of 0.7 miles. The new roadway will include two 14 ft. travel lanes, two 6 ft. bike lanes, 8 ft. sidewalks, landscaped buffers on each side, and a raised, landscaped median. A sidewalk will be constructed on the east side of North Point Parkway, using shared lanes to connect the new Encore Parkway bridge to the existing Big Creek Greenway trail and parking area. The existing bridge over Ga 400 will be replaced and upgraded to acommodate future Ga 400 widening. The new bridge and roadway will include streetscape features such as trees, landscaping, pedestrian lighting, street furniture, and architectural bridge elements. 

Construction began on January 4th and the bridge was closed down to accommodate an aggressive construction schedule. The bridge will be closed from January 4th, 2016 - November 23, 2016, opening  up to traffic just in time for the 2016 holiday shopping season. A detour map can be found in the photos below. Construction of the project will be complete in the summer of 2017.
