Hopewell at Thompson

Status (updated 6/4/18) Concept development is underway

On November 8, 2016, citizens throughout Fulton County approved a Transportation Special Purpose Local-Option Sales Tax (TSPLOST). This 0.75% (3/4 cent), five-year referendum is estimated to bring a projected $37 million to the City of Milton to fund transportation projects. Hopewell at Thompson (Project MIL-006) was identified as a Tier 1 project to be funded with the tax.

On January 29, 2018 the City approved a contract with Barge Design Solutions, Inc. for design services including concept development for this intersection.

The concept phase is a combined study with Hopewell at Hamby intersection. The concept phase includes public involvement, development of concept alternatives for intersection improvements at both locations, and a recommended alternative.

Public involvement includes an online SURVEY, stakeholder outreach for adjacent property owners, public input at Beach Bash at Bell, and neighborhood outreach.

Concept alternatives presented include:

Alternative 1

Alternative 2

Alternative 3

Considerations for selection of the preferred alternative(s) include impacts to vehicle delays, impacts to existing land parcels, and maintenance and construction costs.
