The Georgia Department of Transportation announced the following lane closures this weekend in Cobb County.
Contractors will install daytime lane closures on SR 360/Powder Springs Road on Saturday. These activities are related to the project to widen SR 360/Powder Springs Road from New Mackland Road to SR 120/Charles Hardy Parkway in Cobb and Paulding counties, approximately 6.2 miles.
Crews will close a single lane on Powder Springs Road between Lost Mountain Road and SR 120 on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. This closure will help ensure safety for drivers and workers as they bring construction equipment into the area. Roadway message boards and traffic flaggers will assist in guiding drivers through the closures.
The project will widen SR 360 to two lanes in each direction, add a median and sidewalks in each direction. The estimated $88.2 million project is scheduled for completion in November 2023.
Work crews will also install overnight lane closures on I-20 eastbound and westbound this weekend as they continue work on a safety project to restripe the interstate lanes between Sweetwater Creek in Douglas County to Windsor Street in Fulton County, a project limit that includes Cobb County. This restriping project will enhance driver safety by increasing visibility of the existing roadway striping.
Crews will implement “rolling” lane closures on I-20 eastbound and westbound between Thornton Road and Fulton Street beginning Friday from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following mornings. The location of the closures will “roll” as work crews move within the project area placing reflective tape on the roadway pavement. This safety project is scheduled for completion in January 2022.
Contractors will install overnight lane closures on SR 360/Powder Springs Road in Cobb County this weekend as crews continue activities related to a resurfacing project on SR 360 from Windy Hill Road to Sandtown Road. Resurfacing improves the condition of the roadway. One lane will be closed on Powder Springs Road northbound and southbound from Sandtown Road to Macland Road on Friday from 9 p.m. to Saturday at 9 a.m. Sunday night’s closures will begin at 9 p.m. and open Monday at 5 a.m. Work crews will be patching and milling the roadway. This $2.4 million project is scheduled for completion in spring 2022.
There will be lane closures on US 278/SR 8/Veterans Memorial Highway in Cobb County this weekend from the Douglas County line to the Fulton County line, approximately eight miles, to continue milling, inlay and resurfacing activities. Resurfacing improves the condition of the deteriorating roadway.
Single alternating right and left lanes will be closed on SR 8 eastbound and westbound throughout the project area on Friday from 9 p.m. to Saturday at 5 a.m. Work crews will be applying thermo striping to the roadway to enhance visibility of lane striping on the newly-applied layer of asphalt. The project is scheduled for completion in winter 2022.
Work crews will install single lane closures on SR 92 in Cobb County this weekend for activities related to the SR 92 widening and reconstruction project between US 41/SR 3/N Cobb Parkway and Glade Road. When complete, this project will enhance driver and pedestrian safety and traffic mobility through the corridor.
Single lane closures will be in place on SR 92 eastbound between Adams Circle and Glade Road on Saturday from 7 a.m. through 5 p.m. Flaggers and police presence will slow traffic and guide drivers through this closure.
This $63.6 million mobility ad safety project includes widening SR 92 into a four-lane divided roadway with a center raised median, 10-foot wide multi-use trail on the east side and a five-foot wide sidewalk on the west side. Also included is the construction of a new bridge over SR 293/CSX railroad and a new bridge over Altoona Lake. This project is scheduled for completion in December 2022.
