Residents of North Fulton, including Roswell, are invited to provide their input on a draft list of transportation investments for the county and metro region at the Atlanta Regional Transportation Roundtable transportation forum tomorrow, Wednesday, Sept. 21.
This forum is one of 12 that will be held around the region as the Roundtable solicits feedback from the public on the more than $6 billion in transportation investments, which are to be potentially funded by a regional, penny sales tax referendum up for vote next summer. The Roundtable is required by law to finalize the list by Oct. 15 and want as much public feedback as possible.
Currently on that will affect the , including:
- State Route 140 (Arnold Mill Road) from Cherokee County Line to Rucker Road ‐ Widening
- State Route 400 at SR 140 (Holcomb Bridge Road) ‐ Interchange Improvements
- State Route 9 (Atlanta Street) from Chattahoochee River to SR 120 (Marietta Highway) ‐ Widening and Corridor Improvements
- State Route 140 (Houze Road) from Rucker Road to Mansell Road ‐ Operational Improvement
“Roundtable members have already heard from more than 200,000 citizens and have worked very hard to develop a list of transportation investments that will give people across metro Atlanta more travel options and reduce congestion,” said Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson, chairman of the Roundtable. “Now we need to hear from residents one more time so we can be sure the investments on the list are the ones that best meet the needs of the region.”
Attendees can view a presentation, speak with transportation experts and can complete a survey. The presentation and survey will also be available online and can be seen on FGTV.
The forum takes place at the North Fulton Service Center from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Go to the website for more information about the Roundtable and the Transportation Investment Act.
