Forsyth sets open houses on Ga. 9, Old Atlanta Road projects

The Forsyth County Department of Engineering announced two open houses to brief residents on upcoming road projects: the Ga. 9 Corridor Planning Study, and the widening of Old Atlanta Road.

Engineering staff will be on hand to answer questions at the meetings, to both run from 6 to 8 p.m.

The first meeting, Wednesday, Feb. 26, at Coal Mountain Elementary School, 3455 Coal Mountain Drive, seeks community input on the planning study for Ga. 9 (Dahlonega Highway) from Ga. 306 to Ga. 369 in the Coal Mountain area.

“The purpose of the study is to develop viable, multimodal and cost-effective mobility solutions and to study the feasibility of short-range and long-range alternatives in improving the efficiency, operations and safety of the Ga. 9 corridor,” the county said.

The second meeting, Thursday, Feb. 27, at Daves Creek Elementary School, 3740 Melody Mizer Lane, concerns the upcoming widening of Old Atlanta from James Burgess Road to St. Marlo Country Club Parkway, at the southern end of the county.
