The Marietta Daily Journal – Lee tackles Cobb traffic problems in speech

Transportation congestion remains the No. 1 problem for Cobb County and the No. 1 complaint that residents want fixed, according to a survey conducted by the county’s economic development program known as Cobb’s Competitive EDGE, Lee said.

Lee gave his talk to a group of about 100 business leaders during a lunch at Vinings Bank in Smyrna.

The county chairman called on residents to help him shape the county’s new transportation plan which he hopes to have finished by next summer.

With the 10-county metro region overwhelmingly voting down a $8.5 billion sales tax for transportation known as TSPLOST last July, Atlanta media have complained about a lack of a “Plan B.”

But Cobb County has a Plan B, Lee said.

To begin with, there is the $951 million “reversible lanes” toll-road project along Interstates 75 and 575 through Cobb and Cherokee counties scheduled to open to traffic in 2018.
