RIDGEWALK PARKWAY INTERCHANGE: GROUNDBREAKING CEREMONY

_MG_8163


October 2, 2017 – In an effort to enhance the right turning movement for motorists exiting I-575 EB onto Ridgewalk Parkway, the City of Woodstock hosted a groundbreaking ceremony today on the Ridgewalk Parkway Interchange project.

The project will widen the right turn lane at the intersection of I-575 NB exit ramp at Ridgewalk Parkway.  The resulting improvement will allow vehicles to exit the ramp more efficiently, thereby reducing congestion and wait times. Additionally, by improving the traffic flow eastbound, drivers turning left off of the ramp, heading westbound to Brookshire or Park 9, for example, should be able to reach the signal faster at the top of the ramp.

The City of Woodstock is pursuing this project with permission from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), with GDOT granting the City a special encroachment permit to proceed. Tucker Grading and Hauling of Canton, GA, was awarded the contract through the procurement process as the lowest qualified bidder.


The project, which will start this week, is anticipated to take approximately 45 days and work will occur during non-peak hours.


“We are working in partnership with Cherokee County to permit some additional modifications to the overall intersection.  This represents the first step as it didn't require a modification to the original permits” says Woodstock City Manager, Jeffrey Moon.
