Is anyone aware of the timeline of the GA 400 expansion project in forsyth county. Last year the big 200 miliion dollar project was announced but I haven't seen any timeline of it.

Are there any plans to convert Georgia State Route 400 to a limited access highway with grade separated interchanges up to and past Dawsonville in Dawson County?

At the moment, no.

That first light at Browns Bridge road backs up in rush hour sometimes. Other than that they don't really need full fledged limited access. Although up there at 53 and the outlet mall they could definitely use limited access to help traffic and make it safer. Looking at aerial imagery it looks like everything is set pretty far back from the road. Honestly it'd be the perfect area for a frontage road system. Just for that little stretch. The rest of 400 is fine.

Construction is expected to start fall 2015. I don't expect much action right away.

Here's the link

Its along the top...then click on the GDOT link for more in-depth...looks like the 400 will go from McFarlane to at least Browns Bridge (369). 3 lanes in each direction.

I thought it was supposed to be 4 lanes from McFarlane exit to Bald Bridge Marina exit.

I thought so too, Mich. In my uninformed opinion, it seems like going ahead and making it four lanes could be a good idea. Then again, we don't want to encourage sprawl too much.

The language is tricky, but could it possibly be 2 lanes in each direction after all?
It says "10 foot inside shoulder" (lane 1?) and 11 foot paved outside shoulder (lane 2?) in each direction

3 lanes will at least get rid of the terrible back up at McFarland.

It'll just back up at 369 instead, which is cool with me because I live off Pilgrim Mill
