Skip Spann Connector

The Skip Spann Connector will create a bridge between Frey Road and Busbee Drive over I-75, giving commuters improved highway access to Town Center commercial amenities and Kennesaw State University.


Skip Spann Connector: Connecting Kennesaw State University and the Town Center Area

The Skip Spann Connector will provide a new bridge over I-75 north of Chastain Road to provide direct access from Kennesaw State University to the Town Center economic activity center.
This project will provide:

  • - 19% reduction in daily traffic along Chastain Road at the I-75 interchange
  • - Improved access from KSU to I-75 by constructing barrier separated ramps to and from I-75.
  • - Congestion relief and improved access at the Chastain Road and I-75 interchange
  • - Pedestrian and bicycle access between the KSU campus and stadium


Status of Project as of August 6, 2014



Work on the bridge over I-75 has begun.

Work continues on the KSU campus anticipating a completion with the on-campus work by the end of July.

April 7, 2014 Project begins construction!
August 2014 Monday August 18, 2014 the new traffic light on Frey Road will be fully operational.

NOTE:  All pedestrian access to the lot will be required to be only from the new traffic light location.

Resurfacing of Frey Road is planned to be done during the overnight hours of Wednesday August 20, 2014 and possibly Thursday August 21, 2014 pending weather and traffic conditions.

Bridge construction over I-75 started in July 2014 and will last until late 2015.

Concurrent construction near Town Park Lane should begin later this year and also be completed this year.
