Answering The Question, "What Is Happening On Webb Bridge Road"

Released May 13, 2023 02:45 PM
  • Over the last few days, we have received a few inquiries about construction and tree removal activity along Webb Bridge Road between Alpharetta High School and the Big Creek Greenway.  The activity and similar work underway near the intersection of Webb Bridge Way is related to the latest phases of the Webb Bridge Road Improvement Project.

    You may recall seeing information in mid-March in local news media, on our website and social media channels, or in our newsletter about this work beginning.  (Reference the original article).

    The two phases of the project that are currently under construction include the replacement of the bridge over Big Creek and construction of a new roundabout at the intersection of Webb Bridge Road and Webb Bridge Way.  The overall project stretches from Webb Bridge Way westward to Morris Road but is divided into five segments:

    Phase 1: Extending the Culvert/Tunnel and access to Big Creek Greenway from Webb Bridge Road

    Phase 2: Webb Bridge Park to Maid Marion Close including a roundabout at Webb Bridge Way

    Phase 3: Maid Marion Way to the Big Creek Greenway

    Phase 4: Big Creek Greenway to North Point Parkway

    Phase 5: North Point Parkway to Morris Road

    The project is designed to advance Webb Bridge Road’s role as a residential collector corridor through a design that reduces vehicular speeds and elevates operational safety while also providing enhanced pedestrian, bicycle, and landscape amenities.  It will narrow the width of the travel lanes on Webb Bridge Road to 10.5 feet, which will allow for a reduction in the speed limit and allow for the addition of multi-use paths, bike lanes, landscaped medians, pedestrian lighting, and other amenities.

    Work on the Webb Bridge Road Improvement Project began in 2016 with a series of public input sessions and design charrettes through which residents, especially those living along the corridor, guided development of the initial design concepts.  Phase 1 of the project was completed in 2021, and the City anticipates bidding construction of the Phase 3 segment during the second quarter of 2023.  A schedule has not been established for Phase 5, which will be influenced by the Georgia Department of Transportation’s anticipated replacement of the bridge over Georgia 400.
