GDOT SR-92 PROJECT UPDATE (07/22/2022):
The project currently continues to track for completion at the end of 2022.  The Collins Circle/Lake Acworth Drive detour has been cleared and is now available for travel.  Please maintain safe speeds and drive with caution through the area as this is a frequent pedestrian and animal crossing area.  CW Matthews continues to perform work as follows: 

We will continue to grade between McLain Circle and Bridge 2 (over Tanyard Creek)
And between bridge 2 and Glade Rd./Cherokee St.
Grading and pouring the proposed sidewalk between Orr Rd. And North Main Street.

We will be looking to closed Ragsdale Rd. ( at the back church entrance to Ragsdale Rd.) over a weekend closed. Closed it at 7pm on a Friday night and have it reopened to traffic by 5am on that Monday morning. We are looking at doing this on the 12th of August 2022. Schedule May adjust pending weather.  I can update you later on this closure.
 
Bridge 1B:
•    Spans 1 & 3 will be poured on 7/26
•    Span 2 will be poured on 7/30
•    Approach slabs and parapet will be completed immediately after
 
Bridge 2: 
•    Installation should be completed by 7/30
 
MSE Wall #1 (At corner of SR 92 and Cobb Pkwy):
•    Bonn J is back and should complete panel setting by next week and hopefully complete the rest of their scope by end of July. After the wall is done, we will continue grading, placing gab, curb/gutter, and sidewalk.
 
MSE Wall #17 (Coming off Bridge 1B):
•    All Coping B (outside of Soundwall section) is completed
•    Waiting on material to complete the soundwall (CIP Coping, Moment Slab, Galvanized posts, Soundwall Sheeting, flashing, etc.). Should have that portion done around or shortly after labor day weekend. 

Traffic shift (split to one lane in each direction, to the outside) between Orr RD. and the North Main Street ramp on the 24th of August. 





GDOT SR-92 PROJECT UPDATE:

In order to facilitate the construction of a new entrance at Collins Circle and SR-92 (Lake Acworth Drive), the current entrance to Collins Circle will be closed and traffic will be detoured to the Adams Circle entrance as shown in the picture below. This detour will begin 2/26/2020 and will continue for at least 20 weeks. Please drive cautiously through this area as everyone adjusts to a new traffic pattern, and we get through this portion of the construction process!

We greatly appreciate your patience and support throughout this project!

The Georgia Department of Transportation has developed and funded a project to widen a segment of Ga. 92 in Cobb County.  

The $57.7 million contract was awarded to Marietta-based CW Matthews to transform the state route from a two-lane roadway to a thoroughfare with four lanes and a raised median from Cherokee Street to U.S. 41 in Acworth. GA DOT notes the project is expected to relieve traffic congestion and restrict left-turn movements, which can create hazardous traveling conditions, to openings in the median. Once complete, this 2.8-mile stretch of GA Hwy 92 will also include: a 10-foot multi-use trail on the east side of the road, a 12-foot shoulder with curb and gutter and a five-foot sidewalk on the west side of the highway. The project also calls for replacing the bridge over Lake Acworth, which will cost $21.7 million. The construction contract’s length is 1,156 days and is expected to be complete in Fall of 2022.  

The City has been working with GA DOT to develop the widening project for 15 years since it’s the main roadway that connects extreme southern Bartow County, Paulding County and northern Cobb County with I-75. CW Matthews is committed to keeping the highway open to drivers during the construction period, but there may be some disruptions in traffic patterns. The two-lane state highway is used by about 24,000 cars each day. By the time it’s complete, the roadway is expected to carry 35,000 cars daily and will be able to serve motorists much more efficiently.
