A bridge between Sandy Springs and Cobb County may be named for U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson.

U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson.

A resolution to name the Johnson Ferry Road bridge over the Chattahoochee River for the senator will go before Sandy Springs City Council on Dec. 20. However, a dedication ceremony is already scheduled for Dec. 22, 11 a.m., at the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Johnson Ferry North entrance at Columns Drive at the bridge’s western end. The dedication is open to the public and will include officials from Sandy Springs and Cobb County.

The city owns the bridge, but is working with Cobb officials to jointly support the naming, according to city spokesperson Sharon Kraun.

Isakson, a Republican, has served in the Senate since 2005. For many years, he was involved in Sandy Springs real estate and now lives in Marietta.

  1. Forget naming the bridge for Isakson. Name it for Donald J Trump. Isakson is a card carrying member of the elite Republicans. Jeb Bush, Romney, McCain, Graham, etc. He is not about “Making America Great Again”.

  2. Our local veterans are not honored anywhere. Seems like we should honor them. Why not name it for one of the important Sandy Springers? Or the Native Anericans that were here? Slavishly honoring politicans is sickening. Can we not get a decision maker that actually cares about this place and its people?
