N. Marietta Parkway at Wallace Road - Intersection Improvements
This intersection improvement project will improve the right turning movement for traffic heading westbound on North Marietta Parkway onto Wallace Road. The project will also include signal upgrades and adding dedicated left turn phases for both northbound and southbound traffic on Wallace Road. A right-in right-out island will also be installed at Andrews Drive for a safer access.
Engineering is currently underway and construction is estimated to begin Spring 2014.

Polk Street at Mountain View Roundabout
This intersection improvement project will improve the safety and operational aspects of the Polk Street and Mountain View Road intersection. The intersection currently has vertical and horizontal sight distance issues that do not meet current design standards that cause unsafe driving conditions. Two options being considered for this intersection are installing a roundabout or realigning Mountain View Road to provide a more typical 4 leg intersection. Signal upgrades will also be installed to provide a more efficient traffic flow.
Powder Springs Street Streetscapes From South Marietta Parkway to Sandtown Road
This project consists of improving Powder Springs Road from Sandtown Road to South Marietta Parkway. The project will include new sidewalk, multi-use trail, raised landscaped medians, and streetscape improvements. Engineering to begin early 2014.
Public Safety - Relocation of Station 56 & Additional Public Safety Improvements
Purchase of land for the relocation of Station 56 and additional public safety improvements. Land along Sawyer Road was purchased in 2012.
Public Works Facility Renovation & Fleet / Maintenance Facility
The Public Works facility was dedicated in 1968 and is the oldest operational building owned by the City. Many issues existed that needed to be addressed at the existing facility including: ADA Accessibility, improve security, additional restroom facilities, female locker room, upgrade/replace electrical and HVAC, remove/repaint shop, provide on-site vehicle wash area, reconfigure space, remove asbestos, addition to fleet shop, and other improvements. Renovation is set to be completed in 2016 in conjunction with Traffic Control Center Replacement project.
Phase II, which includes renovations to the Fleet and Maintenance Facility, is scheduled to begin construction in Fall 2016.
Roswell Road at Cobb Parkway - Intersection Improvements
This project will install a new right turn lane for westbound traffic on Roswell Road. This will allow for an additional through lane to be utilized on Roswell Road which will help relieve the backup of traffic headed westbound across Cobb Parkway. The two proposed through lanes on Roswell Road east of Cobb Parkway (2011 SPLOST) will be aligned with the 2 proposed through lanes on Roswell Street west of Cobb Parkway (2005 SPLOST). This project is being constructed the Georgia Department of Transportation in conjunction with the I-75 Managed Lane project.

Roswell Street - Four-Lane Gap Completion & Resurfacing
The Roswell Street 4 Lane Gap project will provide continuity of 4 lanes of travel on Roswell Street between historic downtown Marietta to the west and Fairground Street to the east. This project will also tie together two 2005 SPLOST projects together (Roswell Streetscape Phase I to the west and Roswell Streetscape Phase II to the east). This will include an additional lane of road widening, brick sidewalks, pedestrian lighting, and landscaping between Lakewood Drive and Olive Street. Engineering to begin 2014.
