SPLOST Funds Resurfacing of Silver Comet Trail; Closures Planned
The 12.8 mile trail will be repaired and resurfaced in four sections.
The 2011 Special Local Option Sales Tax provided funds being used to make major improvements around Cobb County and its six cities. For example, Cobb Department of Transportation staff is coordinating a resurfacing effort for the entire Cobb portion of the Silver Comet Trail, funded by SPLOST.
Resurfacing is expected to run June 2 and run through Aug. 29. The 12.8 mile trail will be repaired and resurfaced in four sections. Each two to four mile long section will be closed to all traffic for approximately three weeks. Work will include pavement repair, resurfacing, restriping and shoulder restoration. All closure dates below are subject to change:
• Section one, Monday, June 2-Friday, June 20
Between Mavell Road and Floyd Road
• Section two, Monday June 23-Friday, July 11

• Section three, Monday, July 14-Friday, Aug. 1

Resurfacing activities are only scheduled Mondays through Fridays, and some work is scheduled at night. The entire trail will be open for use on weekends and holidays. Each section will be completely finished and opened before the next section is started and closed. For more information about the project, click here.
