Cherokee County will break ground for Phase 1 of the Technology Ridge Parkway transportation project Friday, Oct. 7.
The Technology Ridge Parkway transportation project is a collaboration between Cherokee County, the City of Canton, and the Cherokee Office of Economic Development, and a funding partnership with the State Road and Tollway Authority.
In April, Cherokee County was awarded a $1 million grant and a $2.9 million loan through the Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank.
The project is expected to spur corporate and industry development bringing more jobs to Cherokee County. The new thoroughfare, when complete, will provide easier access from the airport to the businesses in the area.
