Car wrecks can occur on any type of road, but many of Acworth’s car accidents occur along a busy stretch of roadway called Main Street. The road is also known as Old 41, as for many years it was part of US 41. State Route 92 also runs through the city, as does the new portion of Highway 41.
Unfortunately, Acworth is likely to experience even more car accidents than it has in the past. First, it has experienced enormous growth over the last decade, going from 13,422 people in the 2000 Census, to 20,425 in the census taken in 2010. In fact, from 1994 through 2004, the city averaged 2 to 4 times as many single-family home construction permits as the average Georgia city. As it grows, more and more people will be out on the Acworth roads. Unfortunately, as more people travel along the roads in an area, the number of car and truck accidents and the number of injuries from car and truck accidents tends to increase. Second, many residents have a fairly lengthy commute time. The median commute time in Acworth is 30-35 minutes. As commutes lengthen, and people spend more time on a city’s roads, the number of auto wrecks tends to increase.
According to the 2009 numbers, the city of Acworth, which is in Cobb County, has 60.26 miles of paved roads, and another .12 miles of unpaved streets. In total, the city has 60.38 miles of roadways.
Of course, some roads have multiple lanes, so the government also releases figures on the total lane mileage in a city. Acworth has 127.61 miles of “total lane mileage“. Since Acworth’s lane mileage is nearly double the amount of its total road mileage, the numbers show that nearly all of the roads in Acworth have just one lane going in each direction, with no turn lane.
