Six Flags Drive construction approved for $2.1 million

The Cobb County Board of Commissioners voted 5-0 July 14 to spend around $2.1 million to construct Six Flags Drive.

CMES Inc. was the low bidder at $2,161,692, including $2,045,982 for roadway costs and $115,710 for water system costs.

The project is expected to be completed by next summer with the addition of a 16-foot wide raised median along Six Flags Drive from Factory Shoals Road to Riverside Parkway and landscaping of that median.

Also, this project includes realigning Elsner Road at the intersection with Six Flags Drive.

The project length is .64 miles.

In the fall, the roadway’s name will be changed to Riverside Parkway.

Funding will come from the 2011 special purpose local option sales tax.
