Alpharetta Asks for Rucker Road Input One Last Time

The Tuesday public information meeting gives local residents another chance at giving city staff direction in designing road improvements.

The city of Alpharetta will host the third and final meetings asking residents to help design Rucker Road improvements on Tuesday, asking:

  • How you think Rucker Road can be improved
  • What changes you would like to see along the roadway
  • How you want Rucker Road to look and feel
  • What pedestrian or bicycle improvements you may want on Rucker Road
  • What concerns you may have
  • In what ways you do not want the road to change

Residents at the first meeting told city staff to keep the road two lanes and to improve intersections with left turn lanes to avoid dangerous passing on the right in right turn lanes.

The meeting will be held:

Tuesday, Feb. 26, 7 p.m.
Alpharetta City Hall
2 South Main Street

Since TSPLOST failed at the polls last year, the city has to rely on its own funding sources to improve the road, which connects Crabapple Road on one end to Old Milton Parkway on the other.

Don't come expecting to see proposals by engineers, consultants or city staff. The time is set aside for local residents.

Alpharetta Assistant City Adminsitrator James Drinkard said city engineers will use the comments collected during these sessions to create a design for the future of Rucker Road. That proposal will be presented to the community in March.  Once the design work is completed the time and date will be set and announced.
