GWINNETT SIGNS AGREEMENT WITH FULTON, DULUTH AND JOHNS CREEK TO REPLACE ROGERS BRIDGE
(Lawrenceville, Ga., Dec. 17, 2019) – The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners last month approved an agreement with Fulton County and the cities of Duluth and Johns Creek to fund the replacement of the old Rogers Bridge crossing of the Chattahoochee River.
Each partner will contribute an estimated $350,000 in matching funds toward the construction of the project. These funds will meet the matching requirements from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Atlanta Regional Commission.
This intergovernmental agreement will allow for a pedestrian corridor across the Chattahoochee River. Under a previous agreement, each partner also contributed matching funds for the preliminary engineering on the project.
The city of Duluth is managing this project, which is currently in the preliminary engineering phase.
District 1 Commissioner Jace Brooks said this is a great example of cooperation between governments to make great things happen for their residents. “This pedestrian bridge will connect two counties and two cities and augment the recreation opportunities available to individuals and families in those communities.”
Gwinnett County’s portion of the funding comes from the 2014 SPLOST.
