The good folks of the governments of Sandy Springs, Fulton County, and the State of Georgia are finally starting to widen Abernathy Road.  They have taked about this project forever and are starting to take action.  Here is an article in the Sandy Springs Reporter (April 19, 2009):

Moving dirt on Abernathy
City, county and state officials break ground along Abernathy Road just west of Roswell Road on April 14, commencing the Georgia Department of Transportation’s long-awaited widening of Abernathy and Johnson Ferry roads. Pictured (from left) are Dist. 6 Councilwoman Karen Meinzen McEnerny, Mayor Eva Galambos, Cobb County Commission Chairman Sam Olens, Dist. 5 Councilman Tibby DeJulio, U.S. Sen. Johnny Isakson, Dist. 2 Councilwoman Dianne Fries and state Transportation Commissioner Gerald Ross. CW Matthews Contracting Co. was awarded the $18.5 million contract March 30. The 29-month construction project is slated to begin utility relocation within a month. Isakson, who has sought solutions for Abernathy Road since 1976, said the road expansion is “going to be a great crowning glory” and a “great testament to the way our government is supposed to work.”
