The Cobb County Board of Commissioners approved on Dec. 16 a $17.3 million contract with E. R. Snell Contractor, Inc. for the new Windy Hill Road/Terrell Mill Road Connector.

The $17,339,061.11 was the low bid with Cobb’s portion of the funding - around $1.8 million - to come from the 2016 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST), according to Cobb Department of Transportation Director Erica Parish.

This project consists of constructing a new thoroughfare between Windy Hill and Terrell Mill Roads.

The new road will begin at the intersection of Windy Hill Road and Spectrum Circle and continue north to the intersection of Terrell Mill Road and Bentley Road.

This new four-lane road will have a raised-center median, a sidewalk and a multi-use trail.

The total project is about 0.7 miles long, with a completion date of about 950 calendar days from issuance of the Notice to Proceed.

For this project, the commissioners also agreed to pay $50,000 to HNTB Corp. for additional engineering services on Windy Hill Road/Terrell Mill Road Connector.
