South Marietta Parkway at Atlanta Street - Intersection Improvements
This intersection improvement project will increase pedestrian safety and improve traffic operations. ADA ramps, pedestrian lighting, sidewalks, and crosswalks will be installed at all 4 corners to provide access in all directions. Dedicated right turn lanes will be installed for northbound and southbound traffic on Atlanta Street. Retaining walls will be installed for the widening of the right turn lanes. Coordination with CSX has taken place as this project runs alongside a CSX railroad track. Signal upgrades will also be included to improve traffic operations. Construction is estimated to begin Fall 2016.

Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) changes to the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) are designed to improve the night visibility of traffic signs. This mandate requires state and local agencies to replace signs when they reach the end of their useful service life, which local and state agencies will determine based on their particular climates and environment.
Street Marking Reflectivity
Adequately maintained pavement markings improve highway safety and prevent roadway departure crashes by bouncing light from vehicle headlights back toward the vehicle and the driver's eyes, making the pavement markings appear brighter and easier to see and read. Because the retro-reflective properties of traffic control devices deteriorate over time, the City of Marietta will actively manage the maintenance of pavement markings in order to ensure that they are clearly visible at night.
Traffic Calming Devices
Traffic calming to include one or more different types of traffic control devices such as speed tables, radar speed signs, textured pavement treatment, stamped thermo striping, or other approved devices at locations to be determined. Speed tables have already been installed at Evelyn Street and Hickory Drive.

West Dixie Avenue Intersection Realignment at Powder Springs Street
This project is a roadway and intersection improvement project designed to realign Hedges Street and West Dixie Avenue to one signalized intersection at Powder Springs Street at the City of Marietta Conference Center entrance. Multiple alternates are being considered to provide the best alignments for Hedges St and West Dixie Avenue All alternates being considered will build roadway on new location.
