The Big Creek Parkway road construction is one of the largest transportation projects in the city of Roswell to date. This is phase two of the project.

The overall project purpose is to construct a new roadway (two lanes wide) from Warsaw Road to Old Alabama Road (across from GA 400). Bridges will be a big focus, with a new one built over GA 400, a new bridge over Big Creek, and improvements to the existing Old Holcomb Bridge Road. The new road will feature both a sidewalk and a bike path.

The purpose of the new road construction is to relieve some of the congestion along Holcomb Bridge Road.

Business and Homeowner Concerns

With the start of construction, homes and businesses are expected to be heavily impacted. Construction will take years to complete. For homeowners, this could bring traffic closer to their doors and drastically reduce the value of their properties. Business and commercial property owners risk losing parking, signage, and even access as traffic flow is altered.

Common concerns for home and business owners include:

What to Do if Your Property Is Affected

You have rights even though the government can take your land. GDOT has set $16,561,212 aside to compensate owners affected by the project, but the offers some property owners receive from state officials may amount to far less than what their property is worth. GDOT, like most buyers, is motivated to purchase property as affordably as possible.

We urge you to consult with a skilled eminent domain attorney prior to accepting any GDOT offer.

evaluation today.

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.
