If you shop in Duncan's Corner or visit medical offices at Medical Plaza 1 on Thompson Mill Road, be prepared for major road changes in the area.
On March 13, the road project contractor will begin shifting traffic to the new section of State Route 347. Two new lanes will open from Spout Springs Road to Corners Drive, located west of Medical Plaza 1.
“Please slow down and use extra caution through the area as motorists get used to these changes. There will be slight changes to each road that intersects SR 347 and of course, using the new road to get to the retail areas of Duncan’s Corner will be quite different for motorists. Drive carefully as drivers work through the learning curve of these changes,” Georgia DOT District Engineer Bayne Smith said in a released statement.
The new section of SR 347 will connect with Spout Springs Road north of Thompson Mill Road at the intersection marked New Friendship Road (near McDonald's and CVS, north of Sonic and Trigger Time).
SR 347 begins near Lake Lanier Islands and ends at SR 211 (Old Winder Highway). The road passes the site of the new Northeast Georgia Medical Center Braselton.
