    3. TSPLOST: Intersection Improvement
    4. TSPLOST: Traffic Efficiency

PROJECT STATUS:  Right-of-way phase is currently underway. Utility relocation is expected to start in Fall 2019. Estimated Construction Start: Spring 2020. 


The purpose of the project is to improve the operational efficiency and enhance safety at the intersection of Mt. Paran Road and Powers Ferry Road. The improvements include operational and safety enhancements to alleviate the existing bottleneck condition and reduce side-impact crashes. A roundabout is being designed that will address the safety and operational needs.  This project was included by Fulton County voters, including residents of Sandy Springs, in the November 8, 2016, Transportation Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (T-SPLOST) referendum. 

At a January 26, 2017 public open house, concepts for a traffic signal and a roundabout were presented to the public.  The response was in favor of the roundabout option versus the traffic signal option. A traffic study conducted by the consultant for this project concurred that the roundabout was the preferred option.  The City decided to proceed with the roundabout.

The Mayor and City Council approved moving forward with the roundabout concept into on March 21, 2017. The Mayor and Council approved proceeding with full design on February 20, 2018.
