Nov. 19 meeting set for public to learn about new Ga. 400 interchange in Forsyth County
Hwy. 369 Ga. 400 071219 web
Traffic navigates the intersection of Hwy. 369 and Ga. 400 on Thursday, July 11, 2019. Preliminary work is set to begin on a new interchange project that will upgrade the existing intersection to a "grade-separated, partial cloverleaf interchange."

Forsyth County residents will soon have a chance to check out plans for Ga. 400’s newest interchange.

On Tuesday, Nov. 19, from 6-8 p.m., a public information open house about the upcoming Ga. 400 and Hwy. 369 interchange and plans for the widening of Hwy. 369 will be held at Coal Mountain Elementary School, located at 3455 Coal Mountain Drive.

“The purpose of this open house is to offer the public an opportunity to view the construction plans for the components of both projects and to ask questions,” said Forsyth County Director of Engineering John Cunard in a news release.

Officials from the engineering department will be present at the meeting to answer questions.

The interchange will be a partial-cloverleaf that will replace the current intersection at the road.

The widening project will widen Hwy. 369 from Dahlonega Highway (Hwy. 9 north) to just east of Keith Bridge Road (Hwy. 306), a distance of about 2.4 miles. The work will include four 12-foot-wide lanes, a 30-foot-long raised median, an eight-foot-wide sidewalk along the south side of the road and a five-foot-wide sidewalk on the northern side.

Both projects are funded through the Forsyth County Transportation Bond approved by voters in 2014.

Written statements will be accepted until Nov. 29 and can be sent to:

Mrs. Denise Farr

Capital Improvements Program Project Manager

Forsyth County Engineering Department

110 E. Main St., Suite 120
