Motorists who use Sandy Springs Circle as part of their weekend travel route will need to plan around lane closures on Saturday Sept. 12 and a road closure on Sunday Sept. 13. The closures are needed as Georgia Power installs conduit to allow for underground utilities as part of the City Center construction project.

Beginning at 6 a.m. Saturday only one lane will be open on Sandy Springs Circle, between Johnson Ferry Road and the driveway to the Springs Landing Shopping Center until approximately 11 p.m. for motorists coming from the Johnson Ferry Road side of Sandy Springs Circle. Northbound lanes of Sandy Springs Circle will be closed at Mount Vernon Highway (no through traffic to Johnson Ferry Road), but access to the Springs Landing Shopping Center will be allowed. Georgia Power will shift the available single lane during the work period. Shoppers leaving the center will only be able to take a right turn exiting the center to go south towards Mt. Vernon Highway. Customers of the Fidelity Bank on Sandy Springs Circle will be restricted to a left turn only exit onto Sandy Springs Circle on Saturday.

Late Saturday evening, all lanes will close on Sandy Springs Circle from Johnson Ferry Road to the driveway at the Springs Landing Shopping Center. Access to the shopping center will be available from Mt. Vernon Highway. Those lanes will remain closed throughout Sunday, Sept. 13 as the road is repaired. The entire road is expected to reopen Sunday evening, barring any unforeseen problems with construction.

Barricades, detour signage and flagmen will be in place, and the public is asked to follow the posted detour. Closure maps are located on the city’s website in the newsroom.
