Drivers in Forsyth County may have noticed that Ronald Reagan Boulevard disappears and then returns. The roadway has two non-connecting sections: a portion starting at Hwy. 20 near Northside Hospital and continuing to Majors Road and another section between McFarland Parkway and McGinnis Ferry and Union Hill roads.

County residents will soon have a chance to see how Forsyth County plans to connect the roadways.

Forsyth County will hold a public information open house from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15, at South Forsyth High School, 585 Peachtree Parkway, for a planned 3.6-mile extension of the road from McFarland Parkway to Majors Road.

“An informal open house of this nature is meant to inform residents and allow for more opportunities to answer individual questions concerning construction,” said Forsyth County Director of Engineering John Cunard in a news release. “We look forward to speaking with county residents and sharing the final plans.”

The project will include two lanes in each direction, a 20-foot-wide raised median, curb and gutter, a five-foot sidewalk and 10-foot multi-use path.

The transportation bond approved by voters in 2014 will provide $44 million for the project.

The displays of the plan used at the open house can be reviewed at the engineering department’s office at the Forsyth County Administration Building, 110 E. Main St., Ste. 120, until Friday, Nov. 15.

Written statements about the project can also be sent to: Denise Farr, Capital Improvement Project Manager, Forsyth County Engineering Department, 110 E. Main Street, Suite 120, Cumming, GA 30040.
