The intersection of Roswell and Atlanta streets will be closed April 12-23 to connect services to a new water main and install brick crosswalks. Motorists will only be able to travel eastbound on South Park Square during the closure.
A counterclockwise circulation of traffic around the Square will be maintained for access to parking and businesses on the Square. All other local traffic will be detoured, and through traffic with a destination outside the Square is encouraged to use North and South Marietta Parkways.
A resurfacing contractor will begin milling and paving the street during the week of April 5. Most of the work will take place in the evenings and at night to minimize impact on businesses and traffic. Motorists should expect work to be ongoing 24 hours a day on the Square for the next couple weeks.
An efficient transportation system, which places a high premium on the quality of life of Marietta’s citizens, is a goal City Council established as part of its vision statement.
