SUGARLOAF WIDENING AT INFINITE ENERGY CENTER

(Lawrenceville, Ga., Oct. 28, 2019) – Gwinnett commissioners earlier this month approved upgrades to Sugarloaf Parkway from I-85 to the Infinite Energy Center entrance west of Satellite Boulevard. The $2.8 million project will improve traffic flow at the Infinite Energy Center and the adjoining Revel mixed-use entertainment district being built on the old surface parking lots.

Sugarloaf will be widened from four to six lanes from I-85 to Satellite Boulevard and a third left turn lane from Satellite south onto Sugarloaf will be added along with a new traffic signal, curb and gutter, and drainage improvements at the intersection.

E.R. Snell Contractor Inc. was the lowest of eight bids on the project. Funding comes from several SPLOST programs and from the Sugarloaf Community Improvement District.

In a separate action, the Board accepted about $7 million for resurfacing various County roads from the Georgia Department of Transportation, with a 23 percent local match of about $2 million from the 2017 SPLOST program.
