The Georgia Department of Transportation, C.W. Matthews, and the City of Acworth celebrated the opening of all four lanes of the State Route Hwy 92 Improvement Project on June 9, 2023 with a ribbon cutting.
The project included the widening of the road from two lanes to four lanes, a new five-foot sidewalk on the Lake Allatoona side, a new 10’ multipurpose trail on the Lake Acworth side, two new bridges, double stacking turn lanes at major intersections, improved signalization, and stormwater improvements. The improvements span the section of Hwy 92 from Cobb Parkway to Allatoona Gateway.
In his comments, Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood expressed his gratitude to the team at C.W. Matthews for their efforts in making an extremely complicated, nearly four-year project, as streamlined as possible.
The completed project will help relieve congestion along the route, improve safety, and add needed capacity to accommodate the rapidly growing parts of Paulding and Bartow Counties that utilize the route to access I-75.
The C.W. Matthews team will continue to conduct work along the route to put the finishing touches on the project. The State will keep the speed limit at 35 MPH for the safety of the workers while it remains a construction zone. Upon final completion of the project, the State will return the speed limit to its original 40 MPH.
