Riverside Drive is reopening to traffic after a three-month construction project, Sandy Springs city officials say.

A portion of the road near Johnson Ferry Road was closed so workers could minimize a sharp curve, install a new guardrail and create an area for underground utilities, the city said.

Some work will continue next week, the city said, and single lane closures will take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. during the construction.
