Stimulus funds have big impact in Gwinnett

Federal stimulus money provided more than $120 million in 2009 for Gwinnett County projects. About two-thirds of it was spent on shovel-ready road improvement projects while the rest went for projects to increase energy-efficiency, improve public safety, help seniors and the homeless, build a wastewater tunnel, and subsidize transit equipment and operations.

Major projects include the McGinnis Ferry Road extension, the State Route 324 bridge over I-85, traffic management systems on Buford Highway and Sugarloaf Parkway, a senior services center, the No Business Creek Tunnel, a methane gas-to-energy generator, and a grease receiving facility. See the links below for press releases with more detail on these and other projects.
