The final section on State Route 400 southbound between
State Route 369 (Browns Bridge Road) and State Route 141 (Peachtree Parkway)
will open to traffic Wednesday, July 11 at 5 a.m.
The widening of State Route 400 has added an additional lane
in each direction on State Route 400 between McFarland Parkway and State Route
369, along with widening the bridges over Big Creek and Lake Lanier.
C.W. Matthews Contracting Co., Inc. began work in April 2015.
In December, southbound lanes between State Route 141 and McFarland Parkway
opened to motorists. Starting Wednesday, the entire widened corridor will be
open for drivers to use.
The project was made possible through a partnership between
Forsyth County and the Georgia Department of Transportation. Georgia DOT
contributed $13 million to this work and the remainder of the project funding –
approximately $57.6 million – came from the Forsyth County Transportation Bond.
The completion date for this project is October 31, 2018. Additional work to replace concrete sections and a final concrete grinding will
occur in following months. Weeknight and weekend lane closures for this work
will occur as the work is scheduled.
