    The County is divided into six areas for these crew’s, which is as follows: ¨ Buford Highway (Hwy 20) northeast to Dawson County line to the lake boundaries and Hall County line. ¨ Highway 400 to the Fulton County Line to Highway 20 to the Cumming City limits. ¨ Highway 20 to the Dawson and Cherokee County lines over to Doctor Bramblett Road. ¨ Highway 400 South, Buford Highway South to the Fulton and Gwinnett County lines. ¨ North Central from the Cumming City limits, west of Highway 400, east of Bannister and Doctor Bramblett Roads and continue to the Dawson County line. ¨ East of Highway 400 to Browns Bridge Road, south to Buford Highway and to the Gwinnett and Hall County lines.


    Roads and Bridges Division Supervisor in charge of  the Mowing Operations: Jimmie Rogers, Road Maintenance Supervisor, jlrogers@forsythco.comWe have several mowing crews which have two crew members on each team. Mowing occurs Monday through Friday during business hours.   


    Our mowing crew’s also picks up dead animals and all trees that have fallen on the County-maintained roads. These trees will be removed from the road and placed on a chipper list.


    When any HOA or home owner is mowing and/or trimming of  decorative trees and shrubs within the county right of way,  Roads and Bridges request the following to avoid hazards to the traveling public.*Maintain shrubs one foot beyond the back of the curb or the edge of asphalt on uncurbed streets. *Maintain trees and limbs four feet beyond the back of the curb or the edge of asphalt on uncurbed streets. *Trim limbs to a minimum fourteen feet above the asphalt grade to prevent damage to larger vehicles.


    If your HOA or any home owner wants Forsyth County to perform pruning and trimming within the county right of way, please contact the Roads and Bridges Division at 770-781-2155 or submit a request to bhmeincke@forsythco.com.
