Sheri Gilligan met with Robert Chambers of the Hwy 20 Coalition to learn more about his efforts to have the road improved in its current roadway. The coalition is teaching citizens how to contact Georgia DOT with their concerns with the alternate routes currently under consideration. These alternate routes could destroy anywhere from 800 to 1300 homes and change the landscape and culture of the region with new truck routes.
Sheri has been deeply concerned with the widening of Hwy 20 and has attended several public meetings the Georgia DOT has conducted over the past couple of years. With each public meeting she learned of new options the department was considering like cutting a road on top of Sawnee Mountain or cutting through rural landscape like Chamblee Gap. These and many other options being considered are why Sheri signed the pledge to accept the GDOT options that improve Hwy 20 on its current roadway.
Just another way that Sheri vows to stand in the gap for the citizens of Forsyth County.
