Thanks! Yeah...I think I have heard of this garage. If I find myself in the area, I'll have to look for it.

Road expansion along 41 ...

KENNESAW — Work will soon begin on three projects worth a total of $7.3 million that will widen three roads and add a roundabout at a key intersection.

The City Council voted unanimously last week to allow staff to begin work on condemning 13 properties to move forward with the projects. The properties are small strips of land along roads needed to do work on those roads, said Earnie Via, Kennesaw’s public works director. The condemnations will allow Kennesaw to take strips of land along Old Highway 41, Pine Mountain Road, Stanley Road and Collins Road and work on those streets.

Via said the condemnations are necessary because in some cases there are multiple owners for a property who cannot agree on selling the property to the city. Because an agreement cannot be made, Via said the projects have been delayed.

“There are situations where there are multiple owners, and they can’t agree but they’ve said go ahead and go. They have said they won’t fight the condemnation,” Via said.

Construction will begin first on a $1.9 million project to widen a 0.75-mile portion of Old 41 Highway, said Pam Davis, city spokeswoman. Money for the project was earmarked in the 2005 SPLOST, Davis said.

In the last quarter of 2015, workers will begin widening the road to make the section of Old 41 Highway five lanes between where it intersects Cobb Parkway and Barrett Parkway. Some portions of the existing Old 41 Highway have three lanes and others have two, Davis said.

In addition to the new lanes, a traffic signal will be added where Old 41 Highway intersects Stanley Road, Davis said.

Mayor Mark Mathews said Old 41 Highway is a main thoroughfare in the city that is home to many businesses and landmarks, so the changes will help the many people who travel in that area.

“The widening of Old Highway 41 will increase efficiency, reduce delays and improve the level of service,” Mathews said. “The road is a major highway connecting businesses, the Town Center area, Kennesaw State University and Cobb International Airport. The increase in lanes will help reduce congestion for local residents as well as travelers passing through,” Mathews said.

NEW ROUNDABOUT

The second roadwork project will widen Stanley Road and construct a roundabout at the intersection of Stanley Road and Collins Road, Davis said.

The existing two-lane road will get one additional lane along the entire 1.5-mile stretch of the road between where it intersects Stilesboro Road and Old 41 Highway.

The changes to the road will cost $1.7 million, Davis said.

Construction on the project is expected to start in the first quarter of 2016, Davis said.

Mathews said locals use Stanley Road as a cut through to get to either Old 41 Highway or Stilesboro Road.

“Stanley Road has moderately heavy travel during peak hours,” Mathews said.

The third roadwork project is set to widen a 1.2-mile portion of Pine Mountain Road from its existing two lanes to three lanes.

The portion of Pine Mountain Road between Ellis Road and Cobb Parkway will be widened, Davis said.

The project will cost $3.7 million, and construction on the road widening is set to start in the first quarter of 2016, Davis said.

Mathews said Pine Mountain Road sees heavy traffic because it connects two large roads: Cobb Parkway and Stilesboro Road. Mathews said the traffic on Pine Mountain Road is expected to increase by 1.5 percent each year.

“The purpose of widening Pine Mountain Road is for transportation and safety improvements between two arterial roads,” he said.

KENNESAW — Kennesaw residents have a new location to get their driver’s licenses.

The new Department of Driver Services location, on Old Highway 41 about half a mile from North Cobb High School, opened June 16 and served 9,693 customers with an average wait time of ten minutes and 35 seconds during the first few weeks.

The 10,000-square-foot facility employs 21 driving examiners and has 20 service counters, 14 computer testing stations and extra space for seating. The location also offers a driving course for road testing services.

The location plans to finish construction of its motorcycle testing course within the next month. The DDS is annually leasing the facility for $100,000 through Cobb County.

“The Kennesaw location incorporates new technology in order to create better service for our customers,” said DDS Public Information Officer Susan Sports. “We’ve gone green as much as possible.”

Sports said one of the new technologies at the location is the ticketing kiosk, which allows customers to begin the waiting process for services and fill out the necessary applications.

Sports said the DDS encourages customers to fill out applications online ahead of time to avoid long waiting times and to reduce paper waste.

The plans for construction of a new location in Kennesaw began after a DDS facility on Canton Road in Marietta, which served about 12,000 customers each month, closed down.

“The Canton Road location was too small to serve our customers,” Sports said. “It was very old, and we outgrew the facility.”

The DDS rented the facility in the Piedmont Village Shopping Center at the crossing of Canton and Piedmont roads for more than 15 years, but decided to forego updating the facility due to space limitations and rental agreements.

However, Sports said with the new Kennesaw location and the recent improvements to the facility on County Services Parkway, customers are now offered two locations with opportunities for better service.

The Kennesaw location operates Tuesday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 7:30 a.m. until noon. The location’s services include license issuing and renewal, reinstatements, driving history information, and both written and road tests.

For further information regarding DDS locations and service customers can visit Home - Department of Driver Services.
