East Point, GA- Traffic improvements at Camp Creek Marketplace will soon be made available to commuters in the area. On August 6, 2018, the City of East Point in partnership with the Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs will host a ribbon cutting ceremony for the Camp Creek Marketplace Roundabout located at Marketplace Blvd and Shelby Lane at 9:00 a.m. Parking will be available in the Staples parking lot. This event is invite only.
Design of the roundabout began June 2017 through March 2018 with a design cost of $51,000. Construction began on June 18, 2018 and is scheduled to be complete on August 1, 2018. The cost of construction was split in half between the Aerotropolis Atlanta CIDs and the City of East Point for a total of $359,540. The project design converted a 2-way stop into a roundabout to increase the flow of traffic, increase safety, and reduce delays. Further traffic improvements are coming in the spring of 2020 to install a traffic signal upgrade at North Commerce and Redwine.
