Braswell is a city in Polk and Paulding Counties. The city has a total of 3.1 square miles and houses a population of 380.

The tunnel was bypassed in 1979 by cutting through Braswell mountain slightly to the east. Another nearby tunnel, the Brushy Mountain tunnel at Divide, is currently used by bicyclists and joggers as part of the Georgia/Alabama Silver Comet Trail.
