Lane closures are planned this week on Spout Springs Road as part of a widening project there.
The road will remain open to traffic, but there will be temporary lane closures Tuesday through Friday between Interstate 985 and Thompson Mill Road as Wilmer Engineering workers collect asphalt samples as they begin pavement design for the project.
Plans call for Spout Springs, which is mostly two lanes, to be widened between Hog Mountain Road in Flowery Branch and Thompson Mill Road in Braselton.
According to Hall County’s 2040 Metropolitan Transportation Plan, the project could take place between 2018 and 2030.
In 2011, when the project was set as part of the 2040 plan, the estimated total cost was $44.8 million. The inflation-adjusted estimate in that 12-year time frame is $58.3 million.
