GDOT Project #: 0017814
Project Length: 1.4 miles

In an unusual twist, GDOT plans to reduce the number of lanes of the North Point Parkway in Alpharetta to improve safety and economic development opportunities, and to create a more walkable corridor. As such, North Point Parkway between Mansell Road and Haynes Bridge Road is being enhanced.

An existing six-lane section of the road will be reduced to four lanes to match the rest, but GDOT also plans to provide shared use paths on either side of the roadway. In addition, the facilities along the road will be improved in numerous ways including upgraded/replaced traffic signals, enhanced pedestrian crossings, transit shelters, and other amenities for transit rides, cyclists, and pedestrians.

The posted speed limit will also be reduced.

Property Owner Concerns

The property along this development path is almost exclusively commercial in nature. A great deal of the road-adjacent land is used for parking. Any commercial property owner faced with the loss of parking spaces should be especially careful. And while GDOT’s desire to make the corridor more friendly to pedestrians and cyclists is admirable, commercial interests might be advised to determine how much of their customer base travels in that way.

And, despite the reduction in road width in one stretch from six to four lanes, there will be property taken for this enhancement project. Utility and drainage easements are likely as well. If the project alters access to any of the adjoining properties, it could be harmful to those doing business.

GDOT may take construction easements, and the construction process may cause damage to property owners via inverse condemnation. You may also suffer a loss of business during the construction as well.

What to Do if Your Property Is Affected

It’s still your property until the government takes it. You still have rights, and there’s still time exercise them if you have not accepted their offer. The government has allocated more than $6 million to compensate property owners. Remember: the government wants to buy your property for as little as possible. We find the initial offer to be significantly low in many cases. You are not required to accept the government’s initial offer!

Our state constitution gives you the right to fair compensation for what the government takes. That could be significantly more than the first offer. Compensation for lost business income or expenses like relocation are almost never included. We can help you fight for them!

As long as you do not accept the initial offer, you have the opportunity to fight for more. We can help. 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 – our no fee guarantee. Further, we front the costs of fighting your case and 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 25 parcels of property will be affected by the North Point Parkway enhancement project in Alpharetta. Property owners may lose significant amounts of land, representing significant financial value and usability. For 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.
