Cobb Pkwy widening project gets underway

Posted: Updated:

Peter Varkoly's business EmbroidMe is on Cobb Parkway near Paces Mill Road.

Varkoly is excited and a bit concerned about the increase in traffic that will come when the Braves open their new home in Cobb County.

He's happy to hear Cobb Parkway will get a makeover.

"Now that the Braves are going to be coming into town, there's going to be an addition of cars and a lot of traffic," said Varkoly. "I'm hoping when they complete this that will alleviate all of that."

Ross Vickers has lived in the area for 13 years.

"The fact that we are doing projects would make me believe we are aware of growth and making plans for the future. I think 41 is a vital roadway through our community," said Vickers.

Vickers said widening and making safety improvement to Cobb Parkway before the Braves start playing here heightens his enthusiasm.

"I think it's creating a lot of excitement in the community. It's causing people to think outside the box."
