The FHWA, in cooperation with the GDOT, will prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) on a proposal to construct a four-lane, limited access highway located between U.S. 411 in Bartow County and S.R. 400 in Forsyth County, a distance of approximately 50 miles. The proposed project is necessary to provide a new facility to mitigate existing and projected traffic congestion for west-east traffic on S.R. 20 and other existing facilities in Bartow, Cherokee, and Forsyth Counties.

Letters describing the proposed action and soliciting comments will be sent to appropriate Federal, State, and local agencies. A public hearing will be held and a public notice will be given of the time and place of the hearing.

To ensure that the full range of issues related to this proposed project are addressed and all significant issues identified in the EIS, comments and suggestions are invited from all interested parties. Comments or questions concerning this proposed action should be directed to the FHWA at the address provided above.
