Local & State Officials Hold Groundbreaking Ceremony for New Interchange on GA 400

Forsyth County and state officials gathered on Tuesday, Nov. 17th, to officially break ground on the widening of SR 369 as well as the creation of a grade-separated, partial cloverleaf interchange coming to the intersection of GA Hwy 400 and SR 369.

The project will widen SR 369 (also known as Brown’s Bridge Road) from a two-lane road to a four-lane road, divided by a 20-foot raised median. SR 369 will be widened from just west of SR 9 to slightly east of SR 306, approximately two miles. The project will also include sidewalk trails along both sides of SR 369. There will also be an added partial cloverleaf interchange at SR 369 and GA Hwy 400.

Details on the project can be found by visiting the Forsyth County Interactive Transportation Projects Map.

“The project will create an entirely new traffic pattern for all of north Forsyth that will have a positive ripple effect throughout the whole county,” said District 4 Commissioner Cindy Jones Mills. “Thank you to the voters of Forsyth County for making this project possible with the voter approved Transportation Bond as well as our partners at GDOT.”

The project was identified in the Forsyth County Major Transportation Plan of 2006. Funding for the intersection comes from the Forsyth County Transportation Bond, approved by voters in 2014, as well as Georgia Department of Transportation Funding and state grants. Funding for the widening of SR 369 comes from the County Transportation Bond.

The anticipated duration of the project is 36 months with a planned opening of late 2023, weather permitting. To view news coverage of the groundbreaking ceremony click HERE.
