Additional segment of Big Creek Greenway now open to public

By AccessWDUN staff

More sections of the Big Creek Greenway in Forsyth County are now open for visitors.

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Thursday, June 3 for two sections of Phase V of the ongoing Greenway project. 

One of the segments extends the Greenway from the intersection of Kelly Mill Road and Johnson Road to Canton Hwy. (SR 20), a distance of 2.27 miles. The other segment originates at the intersection of SR 20 and the Spot Road Connector. That segment travels along the Spot Road Connector, Doc Bramblett Road and Spot Road, ending at the Sawnee Mountain Preserve and Visitor Center, a distance of 2.48 miles.

An addition on-mile segment of Phase V has yet to be finished. That segment, which is part of the planned Georgia Department of Transportation widening of Canton Highway, will run parallel to SR 20, connecting all portions of the Greenway. Once the entire project is finished, Forsyth County Big Creek Greenway will be just over 16.5 miles in length.

Funding for the project was provided by the Parks, Recreation and Green Space Bond & SPLOST.
