A Diverging Diamond Interchange is a new type of intersection design that can increase capacity, decrease congestion, and enhance safety.

Two DDIs are planned for Cobb County: Windy Hill Rd/I-75 and Wade Green Rd/I-75.

A roundabout is a circular intersection where traffic flows around a center island. Roundabouts enhance safety, are more efficient and have a higher traffic capacity. Cobb County has six roundabout projects (2015).

Traffic Counts

Traffic Counts GIS map

The Cobb County Department of Transportation collects and maintains a traffic count database for most roads within the County. The Traffic Count Map includes counts taken from the last 3-4 years and is periodically updated.

The counts are the Average Daily Traffic (ADT), which is a 24-hour count of vehicles for both directions of travel.

View Cobb County traffic counts, supported by GIS mapping.

  • Click on a triangle to get traffic count data for that location.
  • Use the search box to locate an address, intersection, or point of interest.
  • Share the map with others or print a map to a PDF document.

The Georgia Department of Transportation also maintains a traffic count database for roads within Cobb County. For inquiries regarding GDOT traffic count data, call (770) 986-1436 or visit the dot.ga.gov.

Traffic Operations

Traffic Operations oversees the county's traffic signal systems and operates an Advanced Traffic Management System (ATMS). The division also issues permits to utilities desiring to locate on County right-of-way and oversees pavement marking and signage issues.
