Alpharetta's Engineering and traffic planning staff have created a draft design plan for Rucker Road after hearing from residents in neighborhoods along the street how the road should look and function. Tonight at 7 the city will unveil the designs and ask if they've addressed residents' concerns.
In February the city held several meetings for residents who live in neighborhoods along the Rucker Road corridor. Those sessions were designed for them to share ideas and concerns for the corridor. City staff listened to learn how they could design the roadway so that it better meets their needs.
Most of the road is lined with residential neighborhoods, but it has become a major connecting route for Roswell and Cherokee motorists on their way to and from work. Concerns ranged from lack of sidewalks to motorists passing traffic in right turn only lanes.
" and since that time our professional staff has been working to meld your comments into an effective plan for the future of Rucker Road," a message sent to participants in the meetings said.
That work is complete and it's time for the city to bring back the design made with those concerns in mind.

The session will begin with a quick review of what staff heard in the previous meetings; the neighborhoods' ideas and concerns. The draft designs for the Rucker Road corridor will be presented, along with explanations on how staff believes the designs address residents' comments.
Then, the floor will be open to residents as they are asked for feedback to find out how well the design matches their vision and if they have ideas for refining the plan.
Residents who couldn't make it to previous meetings are still invited to attend tonight's meeting.
