Sugarloaf Parkway meets State Route 316


Gwinnett County officials held a ribbon cutting on Monday, July 2 to open phase 1, section 3 of the Sugarloaf Parkway Extension. The newest section of Sugarloaf Parkway extends from the West Campbell Road interchange to the State Route 316 interchange and includes the entrance and exit ramps for eastbound State Route 316.

“The idea for a major new east/west road in Gwinnett County has been around for a long time, and now it has indeed reached a milestone,” said Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash during the ceremony. “But we’re not stopping here. Our long-range plan calls for looping Sugarloaf Parkway up through the Buford area and ultimately back to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard near Sugar Hill.”

Funding for this segment of the Sugarloaf Parkway Extension was provided mostly by the SPLOST sales tax program and supplemented by state funds from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
