Expect Travel Delays

Construction Beginning On Bethany Road Roundabouts

Released July 22, 2019 11:12 AM
Construction will soon begin on two new roundabouts in the City of Alpharetta, and motorists who travel Bethany, Mayfield, and Mid Broadwell Roads are being advised to prepare for travel delays.  Physical construction on the roundabouts at the Bethany Road intersections with Mayfield and Mid Broadwell Roads will begin, weather permitting, on August 12.

The work is being timed so that nearby Rucker Road, which has been closed to thru-traffic since late May, will be reopened before roundabout construction begins and able to relieve traffic pressure.

“The intersections at Mayfield and Mid Broadwell see considerable traffic during the morning and evening commute periods, and a high number of vehicles are making left turns at these locations,” said Alpharetta’s Director of Public Works, Pete Sewczwicz.  The new roundabouts at the intersections with Bethany Road will improve safety, make left turn movements easier, and improve traffic flow.”

The roundabouts, which are funded by the Transportation Local Options Sales Tax approved by voters in 2016, will take approximately one year to construct and carry a combined cost of $4 million.

No road closures will be associated with construction of the roundabouts, but motorists should expect travel delays and occasional, temporary lane closures.
