Dignitaries, including U.S. Congressman Phil Gingrey and Cobb Chairman Tim Lee, gathered recently to break ground on the U.S. Highway 41 bridge project.
The bridge is a significant connection between Cobb and Fulton counties. This $18 million reconstruction and expansion project will greatly improve safety and traffic flow for drivers, cyclists and pedestrians crossing the Chattahoochee River.
Replacing the original bridge built in 1935, the new one will accommodate traffic growth in this busy commuting corridor and also complete Cumberland’s link to the 110-mile Silver Comet Trail.
Additional enhancements will include a new dock for boaters and fishermen, as well as modern stormwater management systems to minimize runoff into the Chattahoochee River.
