Gwinnett County is preparing to make pedestrian-oriented improvements on two roads in unincorporated Lawrenceville.

County commissioners recently awarded two projects, one on Duluth Highway and another on Grayson Highway, to CMEC LLC for a cost of $312,693. The Duluth Highway project will stretch from Riverside Parkway to Colony Bend Drive while the Grayson Highway project will stretch from Crane Drive to Park Place Drive.

Sidewalks will be installed on the north side of Duluth Highway as well as the east side of Grayson Highway. Signal, signage, curb and gutter and drainage improvements will also be made as part of the project. The existing left turn lane on Duluth Highway will also be extended as part of the project.

The county is paying for the project with funding from the 2017 special purpose local option sales tax.
