Forsyth County News

A section of north Forsyth road will be closed to through traffic starting Monday.

Concord Road, between Corn Drive and Pirkle Place near the Dawson County line, is expected to reopen no later than Feb. 10.

Forsyth County will be replacing an existing stormwater cross drain under the road that has failed, said Tim Allen, assistant director of engineering.

"Maintenance work, really, is what it is," Allen said. "It’s something that we’ve got to do."

The road caved in slightly a few weeks ago, he said, and the county temporarily patched it in preparation for replacing the cross drain.

The work will be paid for through the county’s general fund, he said, and a county crew will complete the project.

"It’s just materials and labor, so it’s not very expensive," Allen said.
