FORSYTH COUNTY, Ga.— Forsyth County is making it more accessible for citizens to find the information about Forsyth County transportation projects.
A new web page, forsythco.com/transportation, on the county website enables citizens to locate details on county transportation projects including road widening, intersection improvements, paving and more.
The new web feature is map-based, allowing users to find information on projects that may impact their daily commute.
“Thanks to voter support of both the Forsyth County Transportation Bond and the SPLOST penny sales tax program, there are a large number of road improvement projects planned and underway at any given time,” said Director of Engineering John Cunard. “This provides the citizens with a tool they can use to find details on projects that may be occurring near their home or on their commute. ”
The new web feature, which is accessible across multiple devices, combines the county’s Geographic Information Services capability with data from the county’s Engineering Department to put the data in to a map-based platform.
“What we sought to deliver to the citizens with this feature was a user-friendly interface that is easy to navigate,” said Chief Information Officer Brandon Kenney. “As an organization, Forsyth County wants to make the public’s access to information as efficient and effective as possible.”
