The improved connection will benefit those traveling from the growing collection of commercial, residential and entertainment areas west of GA 400 to the North Point Parkway commercial corridor east of GA 400, including the nearly 240,000 annual visitors who attend events at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. The connection creates the first east-west pedestrian/bicycle connection to Alpharetta’s popular Big Creek Greenway.
Construction on the project began on January 4, 2016. The bridge was closed from January 4 – November 23, 2016, to accommodate an aggressive construction schedule. In coordination with local business owners, True North 400 held to the promised construction schedule to have the bridge reopened for car traffic by the 2016 holiday shopping season to accommodate increased traffic at North Point Mall. The project was fully completed in August 2017.
