There were a lot of people and a lot of opinions filling Otwell Middle School for an information meeting on improvements to a heavily traveled state highway Monday night. The first of two public meetings this month on the widening of Canton Highway (Hwy. 20 west) between Cumming and Canton along its existing route from I-575 in Canton to just west of downtown Cumming was held for the community to look at plans and changes made since previous open houses in December. Scott Higley, director of statewide communications for the Georgia Department of Transportation, said the meeting was not required in the process but that the department wanted to get more public input.
