Meadow Drive will close to through traffic at Hembree Road beginning Monday, April 3, 2017. The closure will continue until mid-July. Students currently walking to Pope High School from Meadow Drive will be provided school bus service. In addition to the closure of Meadow Drive, wall construction on the Meadow Drive side of Hembree Road will require closure of the northbound lane of Hembree Road. Northbound traffic will be shifted into existing left turn lanes at this intersection. Signal timing will be adjusted to mitigate traffic delays.
These closures come as part of a CCDOT and Cobb County School District collaborative project to construct a roundabout with right turn bypass lanes on Hembree Road at Pope High School to improve traffic flow and safety for motorists and pedestrians.
