MARIETTA – The City of Marietta is continuing its Gateway Beautification projects during the week of March 22nd focusing on Whitlock Gateway Improvements and Intersection Improvements at Sawyer and Allgood Roads.
These Gateway Beautification Projects are funded through the 2016 SPLOST allocation. The Whitlock Gateway Improvement Projects consists of the installation of landscaping improvements in the medians along Whitlock Avenue near Marietta High School. This continues west of the intersection of Whitlock Avenue and Manning Road. Additionally, the Sawyer Road and Allgood Road intersection will experience the same types of landscape improvements.
Because these two intersection improvement projects have a similar scope of work, they will be completed within the same timeframe in order to reduce costs associated with this project. There will be no road closures and both projects should take about a week to complete (weather permitting). The Whitlock Avenue Gateway Project will be completed first, followed by the intersection improvements at Sawyer and Allgood Roads.
