PRESS RELEASE

CHEROKEE COUNTY, GA (May 7, 2024) – The public will have the opportunity in May to learn about and provide feedback on the Wildcat Sixes Road Project, a multi-jurisdictional initiative to alleviate traffic congestion and bring quality commercial development to the I-575 and Sixes Road interchange area.

Last year, Cherokee County entered into agreements with the Cherokee Office of Economic Development, and the cities of Woodstock and Holly Springs to conduct a traffic study and develop an area transportation plan around the interchange, as well as the adjacent stretch of Holly Springs Parkway. In February, the county engaged Kimley-Horn & Associates, Inc. to work with stakeholders, solicit public input, conduct the traffic study and create the plan.

An open house will be held May 16, from 5:00-7:00 p.m., at the Woodstock Library, 7735 Main St., Woodstock. A brief presentation will be made at the beginning of the open house, but those interested can drop in at their convenience to learn more about the project. An online survey will open following the open house and will remain open until the end of the month.

“Public input is critical to the success of a plan like this,” said Planning and Zoning Director Margaret Stallings. “We hope members of the community attend the open house and take time to participate in the survey.”

The parcels associated with the Wildcat Sixes Road Project face spatial constraints as they are bordered by U.S. Army Corps of Engineers land, the Lebanon United Methodist Church Cemetery and the Georgia Northeastern Railroad. The land is within the Wildcat Character Area of the 2023 Comprehensive Land Use Plan, which represents major employment areas, including professional and corporate offices, regional offices, and medical complexes. The land is divided among Woodstock, Holly Springs and unincorporated Cherokee County.
