Community Leaders Break Ground on Intersection Improvement Project in the City of Powder Springs, Cobb County
Cobb County and the City of Powder Springs hosted a joint groundbreaking in partnership with Cobb-based consulting engineering firm Croy to kick-off construction on a $2.6 million roadway improvement and re-alignment project for the Flint Hill Road and Pine Grove Drive intersection with Powder Springs Road.
“We are excited to finally begin construction on this important project for our community,” said City of Powder Springs Mayor Al Thurman. “We have waited a long time to break ground, but once complete, this project will bring increased safety and mobility to our city and our residents.”
The project is a joint, SPLOST-funded initiative between Cobb County and the city. Upon completion, the intersection improvements and re-alignment will result in a new signalized intersection and increased mobility for the area. Croy provided roadway design for the project.
Cobb County Chairman Mike Boyce and Commissioner Lisa Cupid were in attendance along with Mayor Thurman, city council members and Cobb County Department of Transportation (DOT) staff.
“This improved intersection will bring both better visibility and traffic flow for those traveling through this community, said Cobb County DOT Director, Erica Parish. "We look forward to continuing our partnership with the City of Powder Springs, Croy, and C. W. Matthews to bring this project to fruition.”
“This is an important project for the city, and one we’re proud to be involved with for a county where our firm is headquartered,” said Chris Rideout, PE, Vice President with Croy and head of the firm’s transportation department. “Our design team worked to integrate multiple improvements that will help vehicles move more efficiently through the intersection, while also incorporating pedestrian-friendly features such as a new multi-use trail.”
