Update: Acworth (Cobb)

Freda Kempson sent us a reminder about a traffic light.

“The traffic light at the intersection of Cobb Parkway and Creekside Village Drive needs to be adjusted to blinking yellow to allow traffic turning left onto Creekside when it’s clear. It’s ridiculous to sit there waiting for the green arrow when there’s absolutely no traffic on Cobb Parkway,” she wrote.

We reached out to Cobb County again to see if there was an update.

In June we told you about about a clogged drain.

“There’s a storm drain on Mercer University Drive across and down from the Mercer University entrance. It’s in front of a power pole. This drain has been partially blocked for years. Whenever it rains, it puddles all the way across the double line. In the winter, the water freezes! Now it is completely blocked with grass growing out of the mud in front of the drain,” the reader wrote.

The reader said it looks like the actual top of the storm drain has sunk.

“I have reported it to DeKalb County but am not holding my breath for any action from them,” the reader added.

We learned from the happy reader that it had been fixed.

Item: Newnan (Coweta)

The stretch of Highway 34 between Newnan and Peachtree City is busy. Road construction slows traffic between the two southside cities.

We learned from a reader that DOT was replacing some signs and causing a giant traffic headache. We sent the issue to DOT to see when it would be resolved.
