ERICKSON: Notes in August

The Forest Hill Road project is necessary. The road is crumbling, bumpy, too narrow and a mess. It needs to be widened at Ridge Avenue. But while we should all be able to agree on that, can we also agree that the Georgia Department of Transportation’s plan is too big, too destructive of a beautiful neighborhood and most traffic has moved north to Bass Road. Bass Road is in far more desperate need now of expansion and stoplights than Forest Hill Road was even a year ago or five years ago.
