Ridgewalk/I-575 Interchange slated to open on Friday, November 16th.
The Interchange contractor has provided GDOT and the City of Woodstock with a hard date of Friday, November 16, 2012 as the opening of all four of the ramps to and from I-575, and full use of the new bridge at Ridgewalk Parkway and I-575. Everyone has been very patient and cooperative during the past 21 months, and the city appreciates how well things have gone with this project despite the inconveniences it has presented residents and visitors to the area at times. In some ways it is hard to believe that construction actually began February 8, 2011. The change to the area is amazing.
The city would like to express appreciation to C.W. Matthews, the project contractor, and the Georgia Department of Transportation for a job well done. Also, congratulations to Matthews for an early completion. A noteworthy accomplishment for such a major project having special coordination conditions with the surrounding residences. We know so many people will be thrilled to have this new convenient access now available, especially in time for the holidays.
