The construction of Milton Martin Toyota Way continues, as the company plans a September groundbreaking ceremony.

Emily Hayes, Milton Martin Toyota spokeswoman, said the company plans to have a small gathering on Sept. 5 with members of the Chamber of Commerce, founder Milton Martin and other key persons.

“We constructed the current building that we were in in 1970, so this building will be the first major reconstruction or rebuild that we’ve had for Milton Martin Toyota,” Hayes said.

Oakwood City Councilman Sam Evans said the city welcomes all new business, and officials are excited at the news.

“We’re just overjoyed for them to come to Oakwood,” Evans said.

Construction on the extension from Hughes Drive, a road that will connect Mundy Mill Road with Atlanta Highway, began in early June.

“(Officials) projected around three to four months, just based on weather and different situations with making sure they had plenty of time with unforeseen weather circumstances,” Hayes said.

The dealership plans to move from its 2350 Browns Bridge Road, Gainesville, location to the area near Atlanta Highway in Oakwood.

The prospect of new money circulating in Oakwood excited Evans.

“Any business of that type is going to definitely be an asset to us in that respect,” he said. “They’re going to bring people there. They’re going to have people come in and out to buy cars as well as those people will probably stop and spend some of their money inside the city.”
