Traffic splits on Old Peachtree Road

SUWANEE -- On Monday morning, the Georgia Department of Transportation will split traffic around the median on Old Peachtree Road. It will run between Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road and Peachtree Trails Drive.

Traffic is being diverted in order to work on two lanes to widen the road.

"There is still some paving to finish and work to the median of the roadway before two lanes can be opened in each direction," said Randall Davis, DOT District Construction Engineer.

The change is part of the McGinnis Ferry extension which is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act in Gwinnett County.

The project is 82 percent complete and is projected to be finished on Sept. 30.
