Cowan and Main St Road Improvements
On October 1, 2020, the intersection of Cowan Road and Main Street will be undergoing roadway improvements that involves removing and replacing broken curb and sidewalks as well as adding ADA ramps.

Following these upgrades and improvements, the entire area within this intersection will be milled and overlayed with asphalt and temporary striping. With weather permitting, this should be about a two week project. Permanent striping will be scheduled roughly 6-8 weeks later once the asphalt has had time to completely cure.

Flaggers will be onsite to help maintain traffic flow.


Do you have old cans of paint or other household hazardous materials lying around your home?  Don't know where to dispose of them?  You're in luck. On October 31, 2020, from 9am to Noon, Cobb County and Keep Cobb Beautiful will be hosting a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Event.  For more information click here to pre-register.
