Post Road Expansion Plans

Written by Darren Chase

The Expansion of Post Road has Begun!

That nightmarish turn at the Dickerson corner and the long waits to get past the schools and Vickery Village will eventually become a distant memory. The plan is to convert the 6 mile Post Road from the Atlanta Hwy (GA-9) to Canton Hwy (GA 20) to a 4 lane super road just like Mullinax. Next time you drive on Post just try to imagine how the road will triple in size to accommodate extra lanes, a raised median and sidewalks on both sides.

20 Million Dollar Budget!

The budget includes over $20 million in funds just for acquisition of adjacent properties for the new road. In addition, Forsyth County along with GDOT and Federal road funds will pay for the $42 million+ construction costs of the project. GDOT has broken the work into two phases: 1-Hwy 9 to Kelly Mill, 2- balance to Hwy 20. I’m not sure how many of us will actually get to enjoy the new road. Phase one construction starts in just six years (2024) and phase two begins in only 17 years (2035). But heck… at least the process is funded and has officially begun…
