SPLOST: Gwinnett trails program gaining steam

A year after the Board of Commissioners approved the Countywide Trails Master Plan, about 10 trails are being designed and two are under construction. When the multi-year plan is finally completed, Gwinnett will have grown from about 130 miles of trails to about 350 and connect cities, schools, parks, retail areas, and other activity centers for pedestrians, joggers, hikers, and other users.

The Camp Creek Greenway in Lilburn and the Sugar Hill Greenway in Sugar Hill are complete, while the Western Gwinnett Bikeway from Duluth to Suwanee is underway. Trails in Norcross, Duluth, Suwanee, Peachtree Corners, and Centerville are being designed. The trail system is funded through several SPLOST programs and represents a partnership with multiple County departments, cities, community improvement districts, the state, and the federal government.
