The mission of the Gwinnett County Department of Transportation is to enhance quality of life by facilitating the mobility of people and goods safely and efficiently. This mission is accomplished by planning, constructing, operating, and maintaining the aviation, transit and surface transportation systems.
The Department of Transportation is responsible for overseeing the County’s roadway infrastructure system. These transportation networks include more than 2,600 miles of road, over 730 signalized intersections, thousands of miles of traffic striping, the Gwinnett County Transit System and one of the three busiest airports in Georgia. The Department performs this mission with 167 approved full-time positions and a 2020 adopted operating budget of $51.8 million in multiple funds.
Transit Referendum Placed on November 2020 Ballot
Gwinnett commissioners on July 21 approved placing a 1 percent transit sales tax to fund a wide range of transit projects on the November 3 ballot. This is a new sales tax created by action of the state legislature in 2018 to fund transit; the Gwinnett County referendum will be the first proposed under this new tax.
If approved by voters, the 1 percent transit sales tax would run for 30 years and fund 82 transit projects. The Board of Commissioners developed the list of projects with input from the Gwinnett County Transit Review Committee. The Atlanta-Region Transit Link Authority then approved the list.
Under the referendum, the County would design and construct the transit projects; it would also operate and maintain the transit system except for the heavy rail extension, which MARTA must operate as stipulated by state law.
