Browns Bridge Road 10-Years and Waiting

Take Me To Post Comment Form

On March 27th, in 2007, I attended one of two Public Hearings for what was and still is a long overdue road construction project. That project is the widening of Browns Bridge Road and the replacement of Browns Bridge. The project would have taken the two lane (or three, if you count the “suicide” center turn lane) with a four lane highway, with turn lanes and a divided median. Residents of both counties loved the plans, as the road is one of only two lake crossings that connects the 9th largest County (Forsyth) with the 12th largest county (Hall), and during rush hours, traffic can be just as bad as it is at the Courthouse Square or Marketplace Boulevard.
Why is it 2017, and still nothing has been done, after the State got its easements to expand the Right-of-Way almost a decade ago. Why do they not have any projection to widen the main highway going to Gainesville from Forsyth County? When will our Representatives and Senators in Atlanta, push for the long overdue project? Why did the DOT put that plan out in 2007, when they will not do it or in other terms, why tease us with lies?

In the comments, I found this comment from a College Educator, who is wholeheartedly against it. I know that there are numerous educators ...

Why the lack of coverage re: GA Senate Seat #27
September 04, 2014
Why do I not see any information regarding the Georgia Senate District 27 campaigns in the local news? The GA 27th District Senate Seat is comprised completely of most of Forsyth County, and there is a race pitting Michael Williams against old Jack Murphy. With the primary only 9 weeks ...

Shame on Forsyth Board of Education!
January 30, 2011
I find it completely appalling, that the Forsyth County Board of Education voted to cancel the President's Day Holiday. Why is it perfectly fine to disrespect all of the Presidents of the United States, but it is a crime if you even think about canceling the MLK Holiday? The Presidents ...
