Construction makes way for Duluth Roundabout

DULUTH -- The intersection at McClure Bridge Road, West Lawrenceville Street and Irvindale Road in the city of Duluth will be closed four weeks to complete construction of the Duluth Roundabout.

The road intersection will be closed Feb. 13 to March 12 to all through traffic, which must use Pleasant Hill Road to Buford Highway, or Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to Ga. Highway 120 to get through Duluth.

Traffic will not be permitted to cut through Howell Springs Drive, Irvindale Road, Pine Needle Drive or Frankie Lane. Signs will be placed around the city to assist with detours around the construction zone.

Residents who live in the area and local business owners can access their properties during the four-week period. Provision will be in place for emergency vehicles to have access as well.

For more information about the construction project, call the planning and development department at 770-476-1790.

Duluth is making a biger mistake with this project than they did with the $510K dog park. While most cities are taking them out to replace with traffic signals Duluth is wasting tax payer dollars. This will be a magnet for traffic accidents and near misses. The funds could better be used for cleaning up Buford highway.

Talked to a friend that lives in Duluth. He said that it should be a 3 way stop. Would be cheapeer and much easier to manage traffic. He and his family, by the way, are leaving Duluth and Gwinnett for projects that waste tax payer money like this.He also said that several in that area he lives in are doing the same thing. Fed up with the management or lack thereof in Duluth.
