Motorists traveling on Highway 9 in Alpharetta this weekend can expect heavy delays this weekend due to a road widening project.
Road crews will be continuing a project to widen and reconstruct the roadway between Upper Hembree Road and Windward Parkway, a distance of almost four miles.
Weather and on-site conditions permitting, one right lane will be closed on Highway 9 northbound and one right lane southbound from Upper Hembree Road to Willis Road on Saturday, Sept. 25 from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m.
When complete, the widening project will create two lanes in each direction, a raised median, additional turn lanes at key intersections, traffic and pedestrian signal upgrades, a multi-use trail, a bicycle lane, on-street parking, lighting and landscaping.
The project is expected to be completed in spring 2024.
City officials are reminding drivers to reduce their speed while traveling through work zones, pay attention and watch for workers.
