GDOT Project #: 0010874
Type: Roadway/General Purpose/New Construction
Project Length: 1.9 miles

Condemning Authority: City of Roswell
Estimated Affected Parcels: 53
Estimated Cost: $59,079,926
Right-of-Way Funds: $16,561,212


The proposed Big Creek Parkway Project would construct a new location (Big Creek Parkway) roadway in conjunction with other improvements creating a roadway network that will tie into SR 140/Holcomb Bridge Road on both sides of US 19/SR 400 (via Warsaw Road and Holcomb Woods Parkway).

Phase II of this project focuses on the portion extending from Warsaw Road (northeast of SR 140/Holcomb Bridge Road), incorporating Old Holcomb Bridge Road, travelling northward parallel to SR 400, crossing over SR 400 via a new bridge, and extending southeast to Old Alabama Road.

The primary goals of all phases of the Big Creek Parkway Project are to enhance local connectivity within the City of Roswell, reduce traffic congestion, improve east-west safety and emergency responses across US 19/SR 400, and provide an additional crossing over US 19/SR 400.

The new construction and improvements of this project may reduce traffic congestion and enhance connectivity within Roswell, but property owners on the planned route should be aware of the changes being made and how their properties may be affected by both the process, construction, and resulting traffic patterns.

Business and Homeowner Concerns

As usual, property owners stand to lose some or all of their property when the government decides its needed for the public good. GDOT will make offers, but it’s important to remember that those offers may be low. Like any other buyer, GDOT wants to buy as affordably as possible. It probably will not include things like relocation expenses or lost business income in the initial offer. You must fight for that compensation!

There may be drainage and utility easements taken, which can be very tricky from a property rights standpoint. In addition, there are also historic properties, streams and wetlands, and residences and businesses that may require context-sensitive solutions to minimize the impact of this project.

Your property may be significantly affected by these changes. Contact us if your property is in the path of Phase II of the Big Creek Parkway Project, and we can discuss your circumstances.

What to Do if Your Property Is Affected

Even though the government can take your land, you still have rights. GDOT has set aside an estimated $16,561,212 for right-of-way acquisition for Phase II of this project – but there may be surrounding circumstances that could complicate matters.

You have the right to fair compensation. Remember: the initial offer is just the beginning as long as you do not accept it. You can fight for more. Call 1-888-391-1339 or contact us as soon as possible for a complimentary case evaluation.

We do not take an attorney’s fee unless we increase the government’s offer, and our fee only comes from the increased amount – this is our “no fee guarantee.” The initial offer is entirely yours, regardless of what you do next or what we may be able to obtain. And, we front the costs of fighting your case. If we’re unable to increase the government’s offer to you, you don’t pay them. We do. That is how confident we are that we can assist you.

Affected Parcels

An estimated 53 parcels of property will be affected by Phase II of the Big Creek Parkway Project in north Fulton County. Those property owners may lose a portion of their properties, or a significant amount of their value. For homeowners and commercial property owners in the path of the project, it is critical to understand that the government’s initial offer is just that – initial. We do not recommend you accept the initial offer.

There are only a handful of attorneys in GA who practice eminent domain exclusively. And even fewer with DOT experience. That’s why it’s always worth it to get a free case evaluation.

Here’s how it works:

1) Tell us about your situation.

2) We research your property as needed, using DOT maps, our own technology, and experience to see the exact effects.

3) We let you know what we think a fair offer would be. This evaluation is free, and there’s no
pressure or obligation to hire us after.

But please don’t wait to act. Waiting can hurt your case, and the cost is the same: free.
