Dec. 07, 2012 – The plans for a four-lane Spout Springs Road in South Hall went on public display for the first time last night.
Over 300 people attended a public information open house at Prince of Peace Catholic Church.
The reaction to the project varied.
Some were excited about the new four-lane, saying the road needed to be widened, while others thought there was not need for it to change.
Darron Ripley, who has property off Christy Lane said, “The property we bought can be assembled to have frontage for potential commercial (uses).”
But a less pleased, George Hasaka on the other hand said, “Who determined there was going to be such a traffic flow on this road and on Thompson Mill to create these projects?”
Plans call for Spout Springs, which is mostly two lanes, to be widened between Hog Mountain Road in Flowery Branch and Thompson Mill Road in Braselton.
According to Hall’s 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, the project could take place between 2018 and 2030.
The estimated total cost is $44.8 million.
