Public meetings coming on Ga. 400 projects

A series of meetings will be held over the coming month, to get public input on state plans for projects on Georgia 400.

The State Road and Tollway Authority will host the meetings, to gather input on $67 million in work slated to be done on the road between 2011 and 2014.

Among projects planned is the reconstruction of the ramp from westbound Abernathy Road to northbound Ga. 400; new ramps connecting Ga. 400 and Interstate85 so motorists can avoid surface streets; and building a triple left turn lane for the Mansell Road corridor between the Ga. 400 northbound exit ramp and the North Point Parkway intersection with Mansell Road.

The next meeting will be held from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Dec. 20 at Second Ponce De Leon Baptist Church, 2715 Peachtree Road NE, Atlanta.

Meetings also will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Jan. 5 at two locations: the North Fulton Chamber of Commerce, 11605 Haynes Bridge Road, Alpharetta; and the Crowne Plaza Ravinia, 4355 Ashford-Dunwoody Road, Dunwoody.
