Forsyth County Road Work This Week

GDOT maintenance crews will be working on Highway 369 and 20 in Forsyth and on Georgia 400 in Dawson County.

Beginning today (Monday) maintenance crews with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) will be in Forsyth County this week working on shoulder repairs on Highway 369 and patching areas of Highway 20 that will require lane shifts.

Crews will also be working on GA 400 at Dawson Forest Road doing concrete work that will also require lane shifts, according to a press release by Teri Pope with GDOT. Additional work will take place with patching on Highway 53 requiring lane shifts and slope repairs along the shoulder of GA 400. These projects are all in Dawson County.

Most activities will only require shoulder or median lane closures.

Weather permitting, scheduled work hours are from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. through Friday, Aug. 10. If emergency response is needed at a crash scene or if emergency repairs are necessary this schedule will change, according to the GDOT.

Additionally, GDOT announced Friday that it has been awarded 17 contracts for more than $55 million in new transportation infrastructure improvements across the state. 

At least two of the projects are in south Forsyth including, a $4.6 million improvement to the intersection of Bethelview Road and Highway 9 and a related $4.4 million widening of Bethelview from Highway 9 to Castleberry Road.
