Bob Callan Trunk Trail / Phase 2 Segment B (Project No. D11M0 – 2005 SPLOST)

Phase 2 of this trail project was initiated by the Cumberland Community Improvement District (CCID) as a single project to provide an extension of the existing network of trails in the Cumberland Galleria area by adding a 10-foot wide trail from Interstate North Parkway to Terrell Mill Road. The total length of this project was approximately 2.1 miles. 

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) approved a revised concept in July 2013 to separate Phase 2 of this project into two segments. Segment A begins at the existing Bob Callan Trailhead on Interstate North Parkway and ends at the Interstate North Parkway crossing of Rottenwood Creek.  Segment B continues along Rottenwood Creek to Terrell Mill Road. 

Bob Callan Trunk Trail, Phase 2, Segment B, was previously evaluated and designed based on an alignment along Rottenwood Creek. Due to identified utility and constructability conflicts discovered during the design, the alignment has been modified, resulting in the need to redesign the project.

Railroad Quiet Zone Improvements (Project No. X2313 – 2016 SPLOST)

View 2016 SPLOST Fact Sheet

This is a joint project with the City of Smyrna to create a railroad quiet zone at Nickajack Road. Quiet zones eliminate the need for the train engineer to sound the train horn at railroad crossings once the necessary safety improvements are made.  Based on the initial review of the site by personnel from Norfolk Southern Railway (NSR), the Federal Railroad Administration, and the Georgia Department of Transportation, this site will require the installation of four quadrant gates.   

This project is being managed by Norfolk Southern Railway (NSR), the governing railroad at this crossing. In accordance with Federal Railroad Administration’s Guide to the Quiet Zone Establishment process, NSR will prepare preliminary engineering/design plans and other related construction documents for the project.
