Aerial of Pleasant Hill Road

Pleasant Hill Road, from the Chattahoochee River to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, can be seen in this aerial image from Google Maps. Gwinnett County commissioners recently voted to approve a contract for the widening of this section of Pleasant Hill and to add a multi-use trail along it.

Gwinnett County is moving ahead with a plan to widen Pleasant Hill Road from the Gwinnett-Fulton county line to Peachtree Industrial Boulevard.

The county commission voted earlier this month to approve a $1.2 million construction contract to add a third westbound travel lane on Pleasant Hill, as well as a multi-use path and curb and gutter installation and drainage improvements.

The contract was awarded to Summit Construction and Development LLC and the contract will be funded with the county’s special purpose local option sales tax program.

On the other side of the River, Johns Creek officials have also been working on widening the road — called State Bridge Road on that side of the Chattahoochee — and adding a pedestrian bridge across the river.
