Massage School Commute Improved by McGinnis Ferry Road Widening Project

Commute to Georgia Massage School is Improved as McGinnis Ferry Road Widening Project Draws to a Close

Completion of Four-Year-Long Road Widening Project Results in Faster Commute, Wider Lanes for Students Seeking a Career in Massage Therapy

Atlanta, Ga. – March 13, 2012 – Students and instructors at Georgia Massage School can now enjoy a dramatically faster commute after the recent completion of the McGinnis Ferry road-widening project. The four-year-long project runs from the border of Johns Creek, from west of Sargent Road to the Chattahoochee River. The road was widened from two lanes to four lanes, which doubles the traffic capacity and decreases drive times.

Over 5.243 miles were widened and reconstructed, a project that cost approximately $40.7 million. Along this route, the Georgia Department of Transportation added four new traffic signals. These changes have resulted in a smoother ride and a much faster commute for motorists.

“The McGinnis Ferry road-widening project has made access to Georgia Massage School easier than ever,” said massage director and founder of Georgia Massage School, Laurie Craig. “My drive time has been drastically reduced due to the addition of the two new lanes. Additionally, the McGinnis Ferry overpass, located above I-85, allows motorists to bypass I-85 interstate traffic altogether, further reducing the time it takes to arrive at Georgia Massage School. The completion of this project should provide much easier access for students residing in Johns Creek, Alpharetta, Duluth, Norcross and Milton to fulfill their educations and to pursue careers in massage therapy at our school.”
