COUNTY CUTS RIBBON ON NEW INTERCHANGE AT STATE ROUTE 316 AND HARBINS ROAD
(Lawrenceville, Ga., June 16, 2022) – Gwinnett County commuters can rejoice – leaders placed their stamp of approval on the interchange at State Route 316 and Harbins Road in Dacula.
Gwinnett County Chairwoman Nicole Hendrickson said the new, five-lane bridge which spans over SR 316, enhances safety while easing congestion for motorists.
“Moments like this drive us to continue delivering superior services — services that improve safety and traffic so our residents, visitors and business owners can get to their destinations safely, efficiently and smoothly,” Hendrickson said.
The $50 million project, which opened to traffic in March, was funded by 2014 and 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funds. The Georgia Department of Transportation approved a permit allowing the County to construct the interchange on a state route.
Five additional interchanges are planned along SR 316 in Gwinnett County located at Hi Hope Road, Cedars Road, Hurricane Trail Road, SR 8/US 29 Winder Highway and Fence Road. Construction for those projects is proposed to start in the next three years.
