KARR ROAD ROUNDABOUT

Forsyth County
Cumming, Georgia

Vertical Earth was selected to construct the approximately $500,000 intersection improvement project by building a roundabout at the intersection of Karr Road and John Burruss Road in Forsyth County, GA. The project was done to improve flow of traffic at the busy three-way intersection while also improving the safety of the travelling public. The improvement work included clearing of trees, installation of storm drain lines, relocation of roadway and connecting driveways, signage, concrete island and curbs, landscaping and asphalt paving. Vertical Earth worked closely with Forsyth County Engineering and local utility companies to complete this project in 70 of the contract provided 240-day schedule. The new roundabout was open to traffic in time for the school year start and eased traffic during these heavily travelled times of day.
