Marietta, Georgia – This weekend, drivers on State Route 120/Roswell Rd. NE (SR 120) in Georgia should expect delays due to scheduled lane closures. These closures are part of the Georgia Department of Transportation’s (GDOT) ongoing efforts aimed at improving the road’s condition.
Road Improvement Works on SR 120
The resurfacing activities, which are set to improve the deteriorating condition of the roadway, are planned from SR 120 ALT to the Cobb County/Fulton County line. The project aims not only to repair the existing surface but also to ensure a more comfortable ride for motorists navigating this route.
The lane closures are scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. on Saturday, February 3, and will continue until 5 a.m. the following Sunday morning. Depending on progress and on-site conditions, which include weather factors, either the right or left lane will be alternately closed to traffic. This measure is crucial for the safety of both the workers on site and the drivers passing through the area, as it allows the necessary space for milling, inlay, and resurfacing operations to be carried out efficiently.
Funded at $7.1 million, this resurfacing project is a significant investment in the region’s infrastructure. It is anticipated that the work will be completed by spring 2024, ultimately resulting in improved road conditions and a smoother journey for all who travel on SR 120.
