Portion of Blue Springs Road in Acworth to be closed for improvements

Within the next few weeks,City of Acworth staff will start reconstruction of Blue Springs Road between Main Street and Cobb Parkway. Improvements include upgraded storm drainage, curbs and gutters, sidewalks, new pavements, signage improvements, striping and landscaping.

Due to the project's scope and required reconstruction of underground storm water infrastructure, it will be necessary to close a portion of Blue Springs Road to through traffic. Direct access from Old 41 Highway to North Cobb Parkway via Blue Springs Road will not be possible. Detour signs will be in place and on Monday, June 13, the road will be closed just south of Washington Commons Avenue and just north of Freedom Landing Drive. Weather permitting, the plan is to have Blue Springs Road reopened as soon as possible, but construction will continue for several months.

S.T.A.R.S Registration

The STARS program gives students an opportunity to speak to police officers and ask questions that they might not otherwise have the opportunity to ask.  During the class, teens are able to tour the city jail and experience some police training with our use of force simulator.  The students are able to benefit from the program, but in many ways, the police department is able to benefit even more.  By speaking directly with teens in their own community, we are able to learn the students’ perspective and have a better understanding of how we can serve this vital group in our community. The next class will be held Saturday, August 27th, 2016 at the Acworth Police Department.
