The diverging diamond is expected to open in 2016 at a total cost of $20 million, said Jim Wilgus, deputy director for the Cobb Department of Transportation. The funding includes $5 million from the CID, $6.5 million from the federal Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program and the remainder from the 2011 special purpose local option sales tax, Wilgus said.
Leithead said he was happy to spend the money to beautify the area, even though this cost will only cover the planning stage.
Winter, who owns the Marietta based landscape architecture company Winter Design, said he will focus on three roads to plan for new foliage in the area. Powers Ferry Road, Boulevard and the intersection of Cobb Parkway at Interstate 285 will all receive new grass and plants, according to Winter's plans.
"Instead of a patchwork quilt, we wanted a satin sheet that says this is the area," Winter said.
Cumberland to spend on beautification
"Satin sheet" overThe board voted 6 0, with Bob Voyles absent, to allocate up to $30,000 to pay Joshua Winter to plan landscape improvements in the CID.
The 5.5 square mile CID is made up of a group of commercial property owners who agree to tax themselves at a higher rate. The revenue from this increased rate, which is $5.5 million per year for the CID, is used to secure larger state and federal sums used for infrastructure improvements in the district, Leithead said.
Winter said it's time to start over in the area. He said he doesn't have an estimate of how much the landscaping will cost.
"I think it's ugly. I mean, I could have designed a shoebox," Leithead said. "I'd love to see it redesigned."
to keep its millage rate at 5 mills.
"This is simply a redesign, and a beautification of this bridge," Drey said.
Leithead likened the bridge to a shoebox.
The Georgia Department of Transportation paid to landscape the roads three years ago, but Winter said the department didn't plant the right greenery and Air Max 90 X Ultra Moire now it has all died.
CUMBERLAND The Community Improvement District spent much of its Thursday meeting allocating money to beautify the area.
John Shern, the vice chair of the board, said he was concerned Winter would be landscaping near an area soon to be filled with Braves stadium construction.
"All three of these are key areas," Leithead said. "So, I think it's appropriate to get it all ready to go."
The proposed interchange would switch lanes to opposite sides of the road without stopping, alleviating the need for a left turn signal for motorists entering the interstate. After the interchange, lanes return to their original sides of the road.
Millage rate set
Before talking about the money it would spend on planning for future projects, the Board of Directors voted 6 0 Nike Air Max 90 Br White
Now, the board will decide if it wants to spend more money to improve the aesthetics of the bridge.
However, the design Drey presented did not go over well with the board.
Leithead asked Mike Plant, executive vice president of business operations for the Braves, about the location of the plants, and Plant said the area in discussion was nowhere near the Nike Air Max 90 Hyperfuse Neon Pink
"Some of this landscaping is not working as we'd hoped. That's frustrating, but it's going to look bad until we do something about it," Leithead said.
The board directed Drey to come back with another plan implementing lower barriers and more attractive chain link fencing.
building site for the Braves.
The board, which is chaired by Tad Leithead, talked about spending an extra $1.5 to $5 million on the diverging diamond interchange at Windy Hill Road over Interstate 75. Peter Drey, a representative of Montreal based DE Design and Environment Consultancy, presented bridgescape plans for the bridge running over I Nike Air Max 90 Mid Winter Trainer
The board then agreed to lower the price it paid Winter by $4,700 to an even $30,000, so he could move slower on the I 285 intersection planning but complete plans for the other two roads.
"We're about to face a huge redevelopment (near I 285 and Cobb Parkway), and we don't know what it's going to look like," Shern said.
Drey's plan was to add 18 foot high steel chainlink fences to the bridge that would be "see through" and well lit. The bridge design showed three lanes travelling both ways with a 10 foot pedestrian path down the 300 foot long bridge separating the three eastbound lanes from the three westbound lanes.
