BOARD APPROVES APPLICATION FOR $6.3 MILLION STATE GRANT TO HELP FUND 2018 RESURFACING CONTRACTS
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Oct. 27, 2017) – Gwinnett County Commissioners recently voted to apply for $6,389,307.27 in Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant, or LMIG, funds from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
If approved, this grant will help fund the County’s 2018 resurfacing contract. The state funds will be coupled with about $18 million in 2017 SPLOST funds to address 2018 resurfacing needs.
“We are fortunate to be able to apply for state funds to help meet our resurfacing needs,” said Board of Commissioners Chairman Charlotte Nash. “Voter approval of SPLOST collections allows us to make those state dollars stretch even farther.”
This state grant will be used to resurface arterials and other major roads within the county. The 2017 resurfacing contract addresses about 170 miles of roadway, which includes residential streets.
