PTC’s MacDuff bridge opening expected by late this month

Bridge to Hwy. 74 means that for the first time since parkway was built, there’s more than one way in, one way out

Construction of the bridge on MacDuff Parkway at Senoia Road is complete. The finishing touches on the project are expected to be complete and the bridge opened in late November.

Developer Bob Rolader’s office on Nov. 3 said the final work on the bridge project is underway, with the opening expected later this month.

The MacDuff Parkway bridge will be the final link in the chain that will provide motorists the ability to access that entire parkway that extends from Kedron Drive at Ga. Highway 74 North on the north side to Ga. Highway 54 West on the south side.

Beyond that, and once opened, the residents of Wilksmoor Village on the city’s west side and others will have two ways in and out of the area.

The existing subdivisions in Wilksmoor Village, including one apartment complex, have a total of 1,454 units, while the three subdivisions approved for construction total 1,329 units. In total, Wilksmoor will eventually have 2,783 residential units.

The area was annexed in the spring of 2007.
