Forsyth County News

The state Department of Transportation has finished upgrading the final two crossings in the Hwy. 369 improvement project developed with Forsyth County.

The final crossings to receive upgrades along the highway were Waldrip Road and Waldrip Circle, near Lake Lanier in northeastern Forsyth.

Both reopened Friday afternoon, according to DOT officials.

Waldrip Road was shifted to align with the highway at a 90-degree angle.

In addition, the grade of the road was raised by about 2 feet. 

Waldrip Circle was shifted behind Oscarville Store and lines up across Hwy. 369 with McBride Road, according to the DOT.

The changes are aimed at improving the distance motorists can see along Hwy. 369 as they decide to enter or cross it.

Remaining work includes laying the smooth top layer of asphalt and final striping of the roads, DOT officials said.

Also, a retaining wall along the eastbound lane of Hwy. 369 must be completed and a guardrail installed.

The project is expected to wrap up by its completion date of Oct. 31.
