The Riverside Drive intersection south of Johnson Ferry Road will close to through traffic beginning May 26 so the Sandy Springs’ Public Works Department can begin a realignment project.

The project seeks to lessen the sharp curve on Riverside Drive. During the construction period, the intersection will be closed and a detour route is in place. Drivers are asked to use extreme caution when driving in the area and maintain the posted speed limits.

Work will include roadway construction and the installation of guardrail and sidewalks.  Work is planned to be completed by late August 2015, weather permitting.

Detours will be in place to assist motorists traveling through the area. There will be additional signage to help direct motorists.
