The Hall County Board of Education voted in favor of a real estate agreement that would grant more than 4 acres of right of way for the widening of Spout Springs Road in Flowery Branch.
Hall County Schools will receive $249,960 from Hall County for the piece of property.
Matt Cox, executive director of facilities and construction at Hall County Schools, said this is the fourth Spout Springs Road property transaction that has been approved of by the board.
This particular acreage touches Cherokee Bluff High School.
“The benefit for the district is that with the widening there will be a signalized intersection and our two driveways will align — Spout Springs Elementary and Cherokee Bluff High School,” Cox said. “And we’ll have a light. That’s what we’re most excited about.”
The project to widen the road is a collaborative effort between Hall County and the Georgia Department of Transportation. The road will be widened from two to four lanes and include sidewalks, medians and turn lanes.
