On Wednesday, June 10th, the Council for Quality Growth’s Cherokee Advisory Committee hosted Bert Brantley, the Deputy Executive Director of State Road and Toll Authority (SRTA), along with GDOT’s Assistant State Innovative Delivery Engineer and NW Corridor/Managed Lanes Project Manager John Hancock. They presented to over 40 Council Members on the Georgia Express Lanes Program Briefing / Northwest Corridor Project update. Also in attendance were County Chairman Buzz Ahrens, State Senator Brandon Beech and County Manager Jerry Cooper. Bert and John gave a full overview of the projects affecting Cherokee County and a wealth of information on the Northwest Corridor Project, the state’s Peach Pass Program, and the advances made in that program. The Council would like to thank the County for hosting us, Bert and John for their presentation, and all of those who work to achieve quality and planned growth in Cherokee.
