SPLOST: County joins GDOT to fund design of SR 316 interchanges

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.
