Cobb’s transportation network is a vital part of the community. It connects people and places. It provides the means for moving goods and freight. It offers recreational opportunities. It is the foundation for the County’s economic growth.

And it is the role of the Cobb County Department of Transportation (DOT) to plan, improve, operate and protect Cobb’s transportation network. But this transportation network is only part of the picture. Cobb DOT is also people providing essential public works services to Cobb County. It’s people protecting and maintaining our roads. It’s people working to improve the safety and efficiency of your commute. It’s people devoting considerable time and effort to planning and designing Cobb’s transportation future.

During the May 10 Board of Commissioners meeting, Chairwoman Cupid issued a proclamation designating the week of May 15-21 as National Public Works Week. In recognition of our amazing staff and the services they provide, Cobb DOT will publish a series of articles to help build public awareness of these services and their importance to Cobb County. Each article will focus on a different aspect of Cobb DOT’s efforts to plan, improve, operate, and protect Cobb’s transportation network. Tomorrow’s article will focus on our planning team.

We hope you will join us in exploring these articles to learn more about how Cobb DOT staff works hard to keep Cobb moving.
