Lane Closures on Old Milton Parkway Anticipated
Drivers on Old Milton Parkway in the vicinity of Westside Parkway will see a lot of activity beginning Monday, April 2. Between then and April 26, contractors will be working a Monday through Saturday, 24- hour schedule to complete the final leg of Westside Parkway as quickly as possible.
“Overnight road construction activity is a bit out of the norm in Alpharetta,” said Alpharetta Director of Engineering / Public Works Pete Sewczwicz. “In this case, however, allowing the contractor to work through the night will have little impact on our residents and will lead to Westside Parkway being open to traffic much sooner.”
Motorists should expect to see some lane closures or shifts along Old Milton Parkway during construction. These will be limited to occur between the hours of 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and 7:30 PM to 5:30 AM so as to avoid peak commute times. Still, drivers are encouraged to avoid the intersection of Old Milton Parkway and Westside Parkway when those closures and shifts are occurring.
“Unfortunately, we cannot complete the project without impacting traffic on Old Milton,” said Sewczwicz. “Everything possible will be done to minimize the pain, and allowing the overnight construction is part of that.”
