Pedestrian Overpass in Historic Downtown Acworth
Acworth Bridge 2On Wednesday, October 3 the Pedestrian Overpass in Historic Downtown Acworth was set in place.  This was an exciting and historic event for our city.  The bridge will allow for pedestrian connectivity from our Histroric Main Street to the new Lemon Street Boulevard and Logan Farm Park.  The bridge still needs the brick facade to be added to the towers before it will be officially complete.  The grand opening is anticipated in winter of 2019. 

This is all part of the Downtown Redevelopment Project that has been taking place this past year.  For updates on the downtown projects, please visit: www.acworth.org/downtown/index.php
