(Forsyth County, GA) Forsyth County drivers might want to plan to give themselves some extra time to reach their destinations if they usually use Pittman Road or Shiloh Road. Both roads will be temporarily closed in the upcoming weeks due to major construction projects.
Pittman Road has been closed since June 1 and remains blocked just north of Arcanum Place due to a large drain replacement project. Residents living along Pittman Road can get out to Bethelview Road or Post Road, depending on whether they live north or south of the closure, but the road is closed to cut-through traffic.
Signs posted along the road report that the drain replacement will take until July 12. A Forsyth County Engineering Department representative confirmed that the road will be closed until at least that date since the work’s progress will depend on the weather.
Drivers accustomed to using Pittman Road to cut between Bethelview Road and Post Road must use the marked detour routes along Kelly Mill Road instead.
Forsyth County also recently announced that a section of Shiloh Road located east of the SR 400 overpass in Forsyth County will be closed for a full-depth pavement replacement. Weather permitting, the work will begin at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 23, and will continue through 8 a.m. on Tuesday, June 27.
The work is part of creating the future intersection with Ronald Reagan Boulevard and is expected to cause traffic delays in the area. Residents who typically travel on that part of Shiloh Road in either direction will be detoured to cross SR 400 at Majors Road. The map below shows the detour routes in greater detail.
