Gwinnett County transportation officials are planning to partner with officials at the Lilburn Community Improvement District to study improvements along the Lawrenceville Highway corridor.
On Tuesday, county commissioners approved an agreement with the CID that will see Gwinnett contribute $75,000 in 2014 SPLOST funds toward the cost of three transportation studies for the highway, also known as U.S. Highway 29. The studies are expected to cost a total of 112,500, according to county documents.
“This agreement with the Lilburn Community Improvement District allows the CID to study potential projects at the intersections of U.S. Highway 29 and Ronald Reagan Parkway, Rockbridge Road and Jimmy Carter Boulevard,” Gwinnett County Transportation Director Alan Chapman told commissioners.
Documents provided in the commission’s agenda packet show the studies will look at signals, operations and master planning. One study is a master plan and study for the Mandir Temple District near the Highway 29 and Rockbridge Road intersection that will cost $50,000 with the county contributing up to $35,000.
A second study will be a signal warrant study and signal plan development for the Highway 29 and Ronald Reagan Parkway interchange. That will cost $23,000, with the county contributing up to $20,000.
The third study will be an operational improvements scoping concept plan report for the Highway 29 and Jimmy Carter Boulevard intersection. That will cost $39,500, with the county contributing up to $20,000.
