The Big Creek Greenway

Alpharetta Greenway Closing South of Kimball Bridge on July 26th

Kimball Bridge Construction Detour

The Alpharetta portion of the Big Creek Greenway will be closed just South of Kimball Bridge while construction is completed on the new bridge and utilities are installed.  The closure will take place from July 26th through September 30th.  This will only be a small section of the greenway, but will force a detour on anyone wanting to continue South of Rock Mill Park or North of Haynes Bridge.  A portion of the trail will still be open North of Haynes Bridge, but the closure will not allow continuing past Kimball Bridge.  The length of the detour is 1.3 miles, replacing 1.8 miles of the trail from Haynes Bridge to Kimball Bridge. There are sidewalks available for the entire length, but it does require crossing some busy intersections.  Please make sure you use the crosswalks and follow the lights.

Detour when heading South from Rock Mill Park:
From Rock Mill Park you can follow the sidewalks on Kimball Bridge West to North Point Parkway. Follow North Point Parkway South to Georgia Lane. Take Georgia Lane to Haynes Bridge which will lead back to the trail at Haynes Bridge.

Detour when heading North from Haynes Bridge:
Take the split in the trail that heads to the Haynes Bridge parking area.  From the parking area head West on Haynes Bridge.  Turn right on Georgia Lane.  Turn right again on North Point Parkway heading North.  Use the crosswalk when you get to Kimball Bridge and then head East on Kimball Bridge.

  • Could Seale Drive be used as an alternate ? Or is that not officially recommended because it's a neighborhood ?

  • I hesitate to recommend anyone use a neighborhood entrance to the Greenway unless you reside in that neighborhood. They are usually intended for neighborhood use only and I'm sure the residents of that neighborhood would not appreciate the increase in foot/bike traffic.

  • The Greenway is now open at Kimball Bridge, and I'd like to thank the residents on Seale for their good natured tolerance of my morning commute through their neighborhood!
