Phase 3 of South Barrett Reliever is UNDERWAY!
Kennesaw drivers are one step closer to getting some relief from heavy rush-hour traffic around Town Center at Barrett Parkway and I-75. Cobb County leaders joined the Town Center Community to break ground on Phase 3 of the South Barrett Reliever, a road project that will give drivers an alternate route around Barrett Parkway, one of the busiest corridors in Town Center.
The Reliever is expected to decrease traffic during peak hours by 22%. In this third phase of the project, there will be a roadway built from the Costco area, over I-75, to Roberts Court by Home Depot. The road will also have bike lanes and crosswalks.
The project is estimated to cost more than $36.5 million and is funded through a joint effort between the Town Center CID, Atlanta Regional Commission, Cobb DOT, Georgia DOT and State Road and Tollway Authority (SRTA). The CID funded preliminary engineering for both Phase II and III at a cost of $1.6M and this project was included in the 2016 Cobb County SPLOST work plan.
