Resurfacing along Hwy. 369 in north Forsyth starts

NORTH FORSYTH — The resurfacing of Hwy. 369 (Matt Highway) from the Cherokee County line to Hwy. 9 in north Forsyth is expected to start Tuesday night.

Originally scheduled for last week, the state Department of Transportation pushed the project back to after Labor Day due to weather forecasts.

Once the work begins, the road will be closed from 8 p.m.-5:30 a.m. Sundays through Fridays.

Teri Pope, a spokeswoman for the DOT, has said the pavement surface and structure is damaged and needs to be replaced along the 10-mile corridor.

Crews from C.W. Matthews Contracting of Marietta will begin by removing and replacing damaged asphalt and then will resurface the entire corridor with new asphalt, creating a “much smoother roadway.”

The company has been awarded a contract of $3 million and is expected to complete the project by May 31.
