Jan. 6—The Georgia Department of Transportation announced the following lane closures in Cobb County this weekend.
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 the safety of 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 and add a median and sidewalks in each direction. The estimated $88.2 million project is scheduled for completion in November 2023.
Contractors will also install lane closures on Old Dixie Highway this weekend as they begin bridge rehabilitation and preservation activities on 20 overpasses and bridges in Cobb, Clayton, DeKalb, Douglas and Fulton counties.
One right lane and the right shoulder lane will be closed on Old Dixie Highway on Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. The lane closures will help ensure the safety for workers and drivers. Bridge rehabilitation includes raising the structures' vertical clearance, bridge deck preservation with polymer overlay, painting of steel beams, joint replacement where necessary and stabilizing the superstructures and substructures.
The project is scheduled for completion in spring 2022.
Lastly, contractors will install 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.
Single "rolling" lane closures will be installed on Powder Springs Road northbound and southbound between Sandtown Road and Macland Road from Friday at 9 p.m. to Monday at 5 a.m. Crews will be working at various locations throughout the weekend and the lane closures will "roll" as they move from one location to another.
Crews will be raising manholes and adjusting traffic signal loops along the roadway. This $2.4 million project is scheduled for completion in spring 2022.
