Commissioners approve new bridge and pedestrian improvements along New Hope Road

On Tuesday, February 6 the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners awarded the contract to build a new bridge over the Alcovy River and the installation of a multi-use path along New Hope Road.

The Board awarded the project to CMES Inc. at an amount not to exceed $6,041,798.

Contractors will replace the existing bridge and improve the alignment of New Hope Road at the approaches to the bridge as well. The new structure also will provide more clearance between the river and bridge deck to help address flooding issues in the area. The multi-use path will extend from Callie Still Road to Alcovy River Drive.

Curb and gutter and other drainage improvements also will be installed as part of these projects, which stretch for about 1.6 miles. 

CMES was the lowest of four responsive bidders on the group of projects, which is funded by the 2009 and 2014 SPLOST programs.
