Spout Springs Road Widening Project

Primarily a rural 2-lane road connecting Flowery Branch with Braselton, Spout Springs Road is bustling with traffic from numerous attractive subdivisions, national retailers, churches, and exceptional schools.

Possible Proposed Road Improvements

Hall County, in partnership with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT), is looking at ways to improve mobility along Spout Springs Road, roughly from Hog Mountain Road to New Friendship Road. The project team is examining proposed improvements such as the following:

  • Improved lanes
  • Bicycle and pedestrian facilities
  • Greater road access management
  • Better roadway curvature to enhance safety
  • Turn lanes where needed for safer roadway operations

The result will be a safer and more efficient Spout Springs Road that provides an enjoyable mobility experience for the users.

Public Involvement

Public involvement is a critical component. The project team has already begun meeting with stakeholders along the corridor to gain insight on concerns, issues, and potential solutions. Also, two public meetings have already been held to garner the concerns and insights of property owners. Additional public meetings will be coordinated as the project progresses, and citizen participation is strongly encouraged. Stay tuned to this page for updates.
