MARIETTA – The City of Marietta is pleased to continue its city-wide beautification and safety enhancement projects, this time focusing on the Powder Springs Road corridor from Sandtown Road to South Marietta Parkway. As with previously completed corridor improvement projects including Roswell Street, Whitlock Avenue, Fairground Street, and Kennesaw Avenue, this project is funded by the Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST).

Once completed, the Powder Springs Road project will see a new 8-foot-wide trail installed from Sandtown Road all the way to South Marietta Parkway and will feed into the City’s Mountain to River Trail which runs parallel to the Marietta Square. It will also feature a new sidewalk on the west side of Powder Springs Road from Sandtown Road to South Marietta Parkway. There will be new traffic signals, pedestrian street lighting, new pedestrian crosswalks at all intersections, landscaped medians, and storm drainage upgrades throughout the corridor. Mostly importantly, the project will not only improve traffic flow, but it will also increase safety for both motorists and pedestrians and provide an increased walkability in the corridor. 

The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, September 27, 2021, and is expected to take 18 months to complete. The City’s contractor will begin the work at Sandtown Road and work their way down to South Marietta Parkway. The construction slated to begin first will include retaining walls, curbing, storm drain upgrades, the sidewalks, and the trail. While traffic will be impacted and drivers could see lane closures, there should never be a hard road closure. Additionally, lane closures relating to the construction are only permitted between the hours of 9am and 3pm. The plans for the project are located on our website, also if motorists or pedestrians have questions about the project, they can call 770-794-5629 and will receive a response within one business day. 

The City is excited to see this project begin and looks forward to its completion which will bring increased safety and improvements to the traffic flow for both pedestrians and motorists as well as greatly enhancing the beauty of an important corridor in our All America Hall of Fame City.
