The closure is due to the widening of SR 360/Powder Springs Road from New Macland Road to SR 120/Charles Hardy Parkway in Cobb and Paulding counties, which is approximately 6.2 miles.

Roadway message boards and traffic flaggers will assist in guiding drivers through the closures.


The long-term closure of Old Atlanta Road will continue for an estimated two to three months for storm drain installation, grading and concrete and asphalt work.

Drivers in the area will be directed to Poplar Springs Road to detour around the closure.

The project will widen SR 360 to two lanes in each direction, add a median and sidewalks in each direction.

The estimated $88.6 million project is scheduled for completion in July 2024.
