Over the next months, residents of Forsyth County will begin to see preliminary roadwork beginning on a road-widening project of Hwy. 369 at Ga. 400, officials say.
According to a press release from the Forsyth County government, roadwork on Hwy. 369 at Ga. 400 is part of a new interchange construction project which will upgrade the existing intersection to a “grade-separated, partial cloverleaf interchange.”
In addition to the intersection upgrade, the release states that approximately two miles of Hwy. 369, from just west of Hwy. 9 to slightly east of Hwy. 306 (Keith Bridge Road), will be widened during the project.
Public input meetings regarding this project were held by the county in December 2016, the release states.
The project is expected to go out for bid in the fall of 2019, with the county anticipating to award a bid in early 2020.
Along with funding from the Georgia Department of Transportation, this project will be funded by the Forsyth County Transportation Bond, which was approved by voters in 2014.
Four properties – one residential and three commercial – were part of right-of-way acquisition for the project. The county has closed on agreements with all but one of the properties, according to the release.
