Marietta City Council voted July 11 to prohibit trucks from traveling on Church and Cherokee streets between North Marietta Parkway and Kennestone Hospital at all times unless making a delivery in the area.
The restriction bans trucks with gross vehicular weight ratings in excess of 36,000 pounds or having an overall length in excess of 30 feet. Vehicles designed to carry passengers are exempt.
The city of Marietta recently gained ownership and control of Church and Cherokee streets from the Georgia Department of Transportation, allowing the city to implement the restrictions.
Several alternate routes exist for trucks including Interstate 75, Cobb Parkway and North Marietta Parkway.
