A westbound turn lane on Roswell Road in front of the Big Chicken will be closed for the next two months while crews continue to work on the state’s managed lanes project.
The closure of the sidewalk and right turn lane on Roswell Road between Hagood Circle and Cobb Parkway began Monday morning to allow for drainage work and lane and sidewalk reconstruction, according to Tori Brown, spokesperson for the Georgia Department of Transportation.
Drivers will still be able to turn right onto Cobb Parkway northbound from Roswell Road, according to Brown.
Drivers are asked to use caution when driving through these areas. The dates of the closures may change depending on the weather.
The $834 million managed lanes project will add about 30 miles of “reversible” toll lanes through Cobb and Cherokee County, lanes which will run south in the mornings and north in the evenings. Northwest Express Roadbuilders, the company building the managed lanes, broke ground on the project in September 2014.
The lanes are expected to open in the summer of 2018.
