Project Description

Project Information

The goal of this four-phase project is to provide an alternate route around one of the busiest roads in the Town Center area, Barrett Parkway. Phase one included the realignment of Greers Chapel Road at its intersection with Barrett Lakes Boulevard and the widening of the roadway to four lanes, including a 20-foot raised median, from Cobb Parkway to Barrett Parkway. This phase of the project was completed and open to the public in 2010.

The second phase of the South Barrett Reliever project, scheduled for completion in 2017, will provide critical safety improvements with the realignment of Barrett Lakes Boulevard at Shiloh Valley Drive, including a two-lane roundabout at the intersection. To make pedestrian travel easier, crosswalks and a 5’ sidewalk will be built around the roundabout, further enhanced with lighting and area landscaping. These improvements will increase public interest in walking in the area, previously considered too congested to be enjoyable for those on foot.

Current Status

Phase two of the project received a $1.2MM grant from the State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA) and Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank (GTIB). Phase three of the project extends the Reliever over I-75 and improves Roberts Court between the Reliever and Barrett Parkway to the east. The Preliminary Engineering for this phase is currently underway. Construction funding for phase three is TBD.
