Forsyth County, in partnership with the Atlanta Regional Commission, is undertaking a regional transportation planning study of the SR 9 corridor from SR 306 (Keith Bridge Road) to SR 369 (Browns Bridge Road). 

Click here to participate in the Virtual Open House.

On this page you will be able to view an initial design concept developed for the corridor, provide comments, and learn more about the initial study and feedback obtained at a February 2020 public meeting. You can find meeting boards from the February meeting by clicking here.  

Clicking the above link will take you to a page that looks like the image below. You can use the icons at the top to comment on the corridor study, as well as zoom in/out and scroll to view the entire study area. Links on the left-hand side will provide additional information on the project, including data from the first public information open house.

While this segment of SR 9 currently 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 in the future.  Similarly, the 2018 Forsyth County Comprehensive Transportation Plan identified the need to widen this segment from 2 to 4 lanes. 

To address this, a planning study is being conducted 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 Transportation Plan and establish a timeline for the implementation of short and long term improvements along the corridor.

Residents’ comments on the study materials will be accepted online beginning May 11 through May 25. For more information on other county transportation projects, visit the Forsyth County Engineering Transportation Projects page.
