INFRASTRUCTURE

It's all about connections

across town and around the world

With a central location and an interstate, air, and rail
infrastructure that moves product to 80 percent of the nation’s
population within two days, Cobb County is a model for the
country.

Air

The third most trafficked airport in Georgia, Cobb County International Airport – McCollum Field (RYY) is a public airport centrally located in Cobb and close to the central business district of Atlanta. Cobb’s airport is only second to Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson to have on-site international customs services to accommodate international clients and businesses. Also, Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), the most connected airport on the globe, is located only 20 miles from the center of Cobb.

ROADS AND INTERSTATES

Cobb is accessed by four premier interstate highways, along with more than 2,000 miles of roads, state highways, and commercial rail lines. Hundreds of millions of dollars in local funding have been invested in transportation development – more than any other existing Georgia community. Georgia’s six interstates connect to 80 percent of the U.S. population within a two-day truck drive.

Transit

Cobb County Transit (CCT), the second-largest transit system in Georgia, offers service within Cobb County and to downtown Atlanta, linked with the MARTA rail system and the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Rail

Cobb’s accessible and reliable rail transportation is essential to the many manufacturers requiring raw materials from other locations such as Georgia’s deep-water ports at Savannah and Brunswick.

Utilities & Water

Cobb is served by several electrical providers, all offering reliable power. However, building in Cobb offers the opportunity for Georgia’s unique Customer Choice Program which allows many new, large buildings (with a connected load of 900kW or greater) and many new buildings of any load size (built in shared electrical territories) to have a choice of electrical provider. This allows for even greater savings off of already competitive electrical rates! Reach out to the various electrical providers for more information or a proposal.
