(Lawrenceville, Ga., July 23, 2015) – Commissioners approved an agreement with the city of Lawrenceville on Tuesday to help fund pedestrian improvements along U.S. 29/State Route 8/East Crogan Street from Stanley Court to Village Way near Rhodes Jordan Park east of downtown. The project will install a sidewalk and make drainage improvements.
Gwinnett County will contribute $100,000 from the 2014 SPLOST program with the city responsible for the rest. The city will manage design, right-of-way acquisition and construction.
The County also agreed to use 2005 SPLOST funds to pay half the cost of pedestrian improvements in the city of Peachtree Corners. CMEC LLC will build new sidewalk on the east side of Crooked Creek Road from Jay Bird Alley to the existing sidewalk at the entrance to Mary Our Queen Catholic Church. Curb, gutter and drainage improvements are also included. CMEC was the lowest of seven bidders at $198,779. Work is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The 2009 SPLOST program will provide funds to upgrade the intersection of State Route 316 at Harbins Road, including improvements to Harbins Road at Alcovy Road just south of State Route 316. The project will construct dual left turn lanes from Harbins Road northbound onto State Route 316 westbound and add a new left turn lane from Harbins onto Alcovy Road. The signal at State Route 316 and Harbins Road will be upgraded to include pedestrian accommodations at the intersection. CMES Inc. was the lowest of six bidders at $634,770. Work should be complete by mid-2016
