Temporary Closure of Kelly Mill Road
Updated August 8, 2012: Kelly Mill Road is slated to re-open to through traffic today as scheduled. Thank you.
A portion of Kelly Mill Road will be temporarily closed to through traffic beginning Monday, May 28, to allow for the re-construction and extension of the culvert at Cheatham Creek. Kelly Mill Road will be closed to through traffic from Bethelview Road to Post Road at the culvert. The road is expected to re-open to through traffic by Wednesday, August 8, weather permitting.
The Kelly Mill Road project will include the installation of turning lanes, the correction of grade deficiencies and the installation of curb and gutter with sidewalk on both sides of the roadway. The project will also upgrade traffic signals at Post Road and Bethelview Road to provide pedestrian signals and install a new traffic signal at the entrance of West Forsyth High School.
The overall project completion date is November 30, 2012.
“We are appreciative of motorists’ patience while this work is being completed,” Director of Engineering John Cunard said. “The new traffic signal at the entrance to the high school is anticipated to be a welcome addition to those who travel in this area.”
The Kelly Mill Road project is funded by SPLOST VI. SPLOST, or Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax, is a voter-approved, one-percent sales tax that has been in effect in Forsyth County since 1983. Forsyth County’s current SPLOST program, SPLOST VI, was approved by voters February 5, 2008, and went into effect July 1, 2008.
