Status (updated 4/11/19) Morris Road at Webb Road intersection improvement complete, further improvement concept in development and exploration of additional funding alternatives
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. The TSPLOST Tier 1 project list included capacity improvements on Morris Road (Project MIL-031) in the City of Milton. The overall project description is for a proposed widening from Webb Road to Bethany Bend tying into McGinnis Ferry Road widening at Bethany Bend. The cross section is proposed as a 4 lane divided roadway with landscaped median/turn lanes and multiuse trail including intersection improvements at Webb Road. The widening portion of the project is scheduled to be one of the last projects funded for construction under the TSPLOST program.
With recent signal improvements at Bethany Bend and Morris Road/McGinnis Ferry Road and upcoming interchange addition at GA 400 and McGinnis Ferry Road, an interim intersection improvement project was designed for the existing four way stop controlled intersection of Morris Road at Webb Road. Much of the project uses existing intersection footprint and converts the stop controlled intersection into a roundabout. The project will be constructed with TSPLOST funding and will allow for future expansion with the upcoming widening project.
On June 4, 2018 a construction services agreement with CMES, Inc. was approved for the Morris Road at Webb Road roundabout construction. The project is expected to begin June 2018 was completed October 2018.
