A 10-foot-wide trail from Interstate North Parkway to Terrell Mill Road will be constructed for bicyclists and pedestrians.

The 2.1-mile project was initiated by the Cumberland Community Improvement District for Phase 2 of the Bob Callan Trunk Trail.

Anticipated costs will be $4,508,400 by the Georgia Department of Transportation; $433,188 by Cobb County and $1,287,300 by CCID.

A $10,000 GDOT construction administration fee also will be paid by the county.

The resulting network will connect to other nearby trails such as the Kennesaw Mountain to the Chattahoochee River Trail, the Silver Comet Trail, the Akers Mill Road East Trail and the Palisades unit of the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.

Completion is expected by the end of 2017.
