Cobb Parkway Pedestrian Bridge
Connecting two communities that have been separated by a major state route
The Atlanta Braves’ announcement of their move to Cumberland in 2013 served as the catalyst for the Cumberland CID’s most recent growth. Today, nearly 30,000 residents call Cumberland home, a 27% increase over the past decade. Not only has the number of residents surged but the number of entertainment options has also risen such as The Battery Atlanta, Coca-Cola Roxy, and Trust Park just to name a few.
The draw of these entertainment options and access to critical jobs have showcase the need for a vital, safe pedestrian bridge between The Battery Atlanta and the City of Smyrna over Cobb Parkway/US-41. Since Cobb Parkway/US-41 was constructed, the City of Smyrna and Cumberland have been separated. The separation has made it difficult for people accessing jobs in Cumberland.
