Historic covered bridge to close for safety renovations in summer 2017

Metal support boxes will be constructed inside the landmark Concord Road covered bridge near Smyrna as part of a scheduled safety project that will close the iconic structure for much of summer 2017.  

The popular Cobb County-owned bridge is one of the busiest one-lane covered bridges in the South, carrying 7,000 to 10,000 motorists daily. Slated renovations will strengthen it and keep it from leaning.

“The bridge is hit about once a month,” said Jim Wilgus, director of the Cobb County Department of Transportation (CCDOT). “The hits have caused it to lean, and we need to fix that.”

Weekend closure for Circle 75, Windy Ridge intersection

The intersection of Circle 75 Parkway and Windy Ridge Parkway will close at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10, for the installation and assembly of two pedestrian bridges for The Battery Atlanta. Closures on Circle 75 Parkway between Windy Ridge Parkway and Crescent Parkway and on Windy Ridge Parkway between Cobb Parkway and Interstate North Parkway will prohibit through traffic. The roadways will reopen Monday, Feb. 12, at 5 a.m. Signage and traffic control devices will be in place to direct drivers. Motorists should follow the posted detour or take alternate routes to avoid congestion and delays.
