For longtime Towne Lake residents, it may be hard to believe that the roads in our community that were brand new what may seem to have been just a few years ago are now in need of repair, maintenance and upgrade. Towne Lake however is now a mature community versus a brand new subdivision.
The $2 million patching and resurfacing project along Towne Lake Parkway and Rose Creek Drive began recently and is expected to be completed by November. The project includes patching and resurfacing Towne Lake Parkway between Eagle Drive and Bells Ferry Road, and Rose Creek Drive between Eagle Drive and Towne Lake Parkway. The contractor for this project is CW Matthews Contracting, Inc.
The first phase which will be the patching portion will take about three weeks to complete. This work will be done primarily in the evening between 6 p.m. and 6 a.m. in order to cause the least possible amount of traffic disruption, according to the Cherokee County Roadway Capital Program Management Division.
In addition to the patching and repaving, there will be upgrades to pedestrian crossings on Towne Lake Parkway and Rose Creek Drive. There will also be deceleration lanes added at Andover Way, Arborhill Drive, and Rose Creek Lane.
The final portion of the work will be pavement milling and a final resurfacing which will also take place in the evening, once again to try and avoid disruption of normal traffic as much as possible.
Area residents with questions or concerns regarding the project can contact Cherokee County Roadway Capital Program Management Division at 678-493-6077.
