SPLOST: County joins GDOT to fund design of SR 316 interchanges
– December 19, 2019
The Gwinnett Board of Commissioners recently approved an agreement with the Georgia Department of Transportation to fund the preliminary design of a grade-separated interchange on State Route 8 over State Route 316.
GDOT will provide nearly $2 million with Gwinnett County providing an equal amount of matching funds towards the preliminary engineering for the project, which includes interchanges at Hurricane Trail and State Route 8/Winder Highway. The County’s portion will come from the 2017 SPLOST program.
Construction is anticipated to begin in 2022. Other related projects include interchanges at Hi-Hope Road and Harbins Road. Construction on the Harbins Road interchange project is expected to be completed in 2022. The Hi-Hope Road interchange is in the preliminary design phase.
