Major road work coming to Six Flags area

Good news for Six Flags fans—the drive toward the park is about to see big improvements.

Recently Cobb County won a $1.6 million grant to update the section of Riverside Parkway from I-20 eastbound to Six Flags Drive. In addition to realigning an intersection, Cobb County will also improve sidewalks, traffic signals and signage along the road.
