SPLOST: Venture Drive roundabout nearly complete
– October 2, 2020
Construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Day Drive and Venture Drive near Steve Reynolds Boulevard is on track to be finished before the end of the year, weather permitting. Roundabouts allow better traffic flow than intersections with stop signs or traffic signals and tend to have fewer severe accidents than traditional right-angle intersections.
The project includes the installation of lighting at the roundabout, curb and gutter, sidewalks, and drainage improvements, along with upgrades to the Steve Reynolds Boulevard intersection.
Funding is provided by the 2009 and 2017 SPLOST programs, the State Road and Tollway Authority, and the Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District.
