The city of Gainesville and the local transportation planning organization have kicked off a study on the high-traffic Dawsonville Highway and McEver Road area.
The city and Gainesville-Hall Metropolitan Planning Organization are working together on the connectivity study.
The first two public input opportunities begin with an online survey, already active online.
"This study will provide recommendations for intersection improvements and/or potential street connections for alternate routes and provide a prioritization of projects for implementation of improvement," officials stated in the survey introduction.
According to a media release from the city, project team members hope to use the survey results to learn why, how and when people travel in the area. The study focus generally includes Dawsonville Highway from Pearl Nix Parkway to the Jerry D. Jackson Bridge. The McEver stretch runs between Dawsonville Highway and Spring Road.
The second public comment option is an informational meeting on Thursday, March 22.
"The public is invited to drop in at any time during the open house to learn more about the study and provide feedback," officials stated in the release.
City and GHMPO will host the 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. open house style session at the Municipal Court Building, 701 Queen City Parkway, Gainesville, GA 30501.
