SOUTH FORSYTH — The Georgia Department of Transportation held an open house Tuesday night at Vickery Creek Middle School to gather input on its preliminary plans to widen the well-traveled section of Hwy. 9 between Peachtree Parkway and the Fulton County line. There wasn’t a formal presentation, but department engineers and consultants were on hand to gather local perspectives. The project would transform the south Forsyth road, which is also known as Atlanta Highway, into a four-lane divided corridor with sidewalks on both sides.
