The May 26, 9 a.m. Forsyth County Finance Committee meeting will be held via teleconference, pursuant to O.C.G.A. 50-14-1(g).  The meeting will be live streamed on the County’s YouTube channel: tvforsyth.com.

Residents encouraged to view the planning study and provide online feedback

The Forsyth County Department of Engineering will host a virtual open house where residents can view interactive maps and provide feedback on a planning study for State Route 9, from SR 306 to SR 369.

 

Residents can visit Forsythco.com/SR9Study to participate in this virtual open house. Residents’ comments on the study materials will be accepted online through May 25. 


“Each day as I travel home on SR 9, congestion and backups grow worse. It is imperative that we do everything we can to have this section of SR 9 identified as a road that should be incorporated into the regional transportation plan - as well as GDOT’s plan - and this study can help do that,” said District 4 Commissioner Cindy Jones Mills. “Your input and participation are essential to the success of this study.”

 

The SR 9 Corridor Study is a joint project between Forsyth County and the Atlanta Regional Commission and the purpose of the study is to:

 

-        Proactively identify the patterns and impacts of future growth to the corridor

-        Understand the community’s vision for the corridor

-        Confirm the need for the widening anticipated in the 2018 Transportation Plan that called for the need to widen this segment to four lanes

-        Establish a timeline for the implementation of short- and long-term improvements

 

“While this segment of SR 9 serves about 10,000 vehicles a day, projections into the future suggest that traffic and development growth will continue and result in over 25,000 vehicles a day,” said Forsyth County Director of Engineering John Cunard. “We know there is a great deal of interest in this project and we are glad to have this opportunity to hear from residents and provide them with an update.”
