The City of Gainesville and the Gainesville-Hall Metropolitan Planning Organization (GHMPO) conducted the Dawsonville Highway – McEver Road Connectivity Study. The study focused on the Dawsonville Highway corridor and more specifically the Dawsonville Highway – McEver Road intersection. This intersection is located in one of Gainesville’s busiest commercial districts and acts as a regional connection to locations including downtown Gainesville, Dawsonville, Cumming and Forsyth Counties. This area had seen an increase in traffic congestion due to rapid growth and development and was made worse by localized traffic competing for limited roadway capacity with regional traffic traveling through the area. The study examined the existing and future needs associated with the area’s vehicular travel, traffic and congestion, as well as assessed the current and proposed transportation projects in order to develop recommendations for alternative options to improve mobility and connectivity within the study area.
