ALPHARETTA — Lanes will be closed on Highway 9 between Maxwell Road and Old Milton Parkway in the City of Alpharetta Sunday for utility work, according to a statement from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
The closure, set for March 5 from 8 a.m. until noon, will be in effect to ensure the safety of drivers and work crews as Georgia Power installs utility poles near the intersection with Devore Road.
Northbound traffic on Highway 9 will be closed from just north of Maxwell Road to Old Milton Parkway. However, southbound traffic will continue to have access to the area.
Motorists approaching the closure from the north will be detoured at Maxwell Road to travel northbound on Roswell Street to Old Milton Parkway, then southbound on Highway 9.
On-site signage and police officers will guide drivers and pedestrians through the work zone and detour routes.
GDOT advises motorists to reduce their speeds in the work zone, wear seatbelts, eliminate distractions behind the wheel, and plan routes before getting on the road by calling 511, visiting 511ga.org, or downloading the 511GA app for Apple or Android for real-time information on work status and traffic conditions.
The closure is weather and on-site conditions permitting.
