Keeping you in the loop
One major project that has been on the books for years in Forsyth County is the Northern Beltway. The project is made up of three sections for a total length of 34 miles. Unfortunately, the project has been tied up due to numerous issues from problems with the Environmental Impact Statement to changes in how the State allocates money for beltway projects. Many people in the community see this project as crucial both from a traffic management standpoint as well as an essential economic development driver. Citizens with properties in the right-of-way have been left holding properties they can neither sell or improve.
