North Fulton residents' opinions sought on Ga. 9 reconstruction

The Georgia Department of Transportation will conduct a public hearing open house from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday at Alpharetta City Hall to gather opinions about a proposal to widen State Route 9.

GDOT plans to widen and reconstruct Ga. 9 from Upper Hembree Road to Windward Parkway, in one of the fastest growing communities in North Fulton.

The widening project would include a reconfiguration of side roads, installation of a multi-use path, sidewalks, and signal upgrades.

Additional project information is available on the Georgia DOT website.

The public can ask questions or record their comments at the open house. Written statements can also be submitted until July 7 to:
