Tower Road between Church Street and the rail road overpass will be improved to a 4 lane roadway with landscaped median and sidewalks. The project also includes turn lane improvements on Church Street and Cherokee Streets, a new road connection between White Street and Campbell Hill Street that will align with the new signalized intersection at Kennestone Hospital and Plaza Way on Tower Road. Once the newly aligned Campbell Hill Road and Marble Mill Road are constructed the unused portions of White Street and Campbell Hill Street will be closed.
This project also includes the realignment of North Avenue and Cogburn Avenue into a single intersection and lowering of 2 hills on Tower Road for increased visibility. Construction is scheduled to begin Fall 2009 and expected to last through 2010. The following is a project map and letter size route map of the proposed road improvements.
