Next week, Forsyth County residents will have a chance to hear from the experts on a number of road projects going on around the county.

The 2019 Forsyth County Transportation Summit will be held 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 10 at The Forsyth Conference Center at Lanier Tech and will give attendees a chance to hear from a number of experts on county, city and state projects.

“This summit is a great opportunity for Forsyth County residents to hear directly from those who are working diligently to improve transportation and mobility in our community,” said Forsyth County Manager Eric Johnson in a news release.

Forsyth County Assistant County Manager Garrin Coleman, Cumming Mayor Troy Brumbalow and District 1 Assistant Engineer Brandon Kirby will give updates on county, city and state projects, respectively.

A roundtable will also be held with GDOT Commissioner Russel McMurry, District 9 state Rep. Kevin Tanner, who is chairman of the state House transportation committee, and Chris Tomlinson, who serves as executive director of the State Road and Tollway Authority and Georgia Regional Transportation Authority and interim executive director of the newly created Atlanta-region Transit Link Authority.

The meeting will conclude with a question-and-answer portion.

There is no charge to attend the meeting, and an optional lunch will be $15 for both Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce members and nonmembers.
