2. Trail Closings in Cobb County
Beginning in January 2014, Cobb County will start remodeling their section of trail including restoring 6 pedestrian bridges, repaving the trail, and improving the surrounding areas. Sections of the Silver Comet will be closed during heavy construction, and no detours are planned. Construction will continue through the 2014 spring months.
Once completed, the Cobb section of the Silver Comet will look brand new, while still preserving its historical features. Cobb will provide a construction schedule, once construction starts.
