CobbLinc Cumberland Circulator approved

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners voted to authorize two new transit routes for the CobbLinc Cumberland Circulator beginning in March 2017. These routes are critical for managing congestion and facilitating economic development in the area. The new routes will provide transit options for the business community during the week and SunTrust visitors for Braves home games.

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.”
