Intersection reopens near Cobb County polling place after gas main break

The intersection reopened early Tuesday morning. Crews worked on the break through the night to make sure repairs were made before the morning rush hour and before polls opened. 


Cobb County repair crews are now working into the evening to repair damage done by a gas main break at the intersection of Sewell Mill Road and Bill Murdock Road. As a result, that intersection has been closed.

Officials noted that the closed-off intersection is near a polling place that is expected to be used during the primary election on Tuesday, May 21.
