Several transportation projects involving sidewalks or a new water main are about to begin in western Gwinnett County.

County commissioners recently gave the OK to a $835,148 contract with Sol Construction LLC to carry out the projects on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard, Holcomb Bridge Road and Pond Road. The PIB and Holcomb Bridge projects entail the addition of new sidewalks in areas where they don't already exist.

Meanwhile, a new drainage system and a new water main will be installed on Pond Road, from Ingram Road to Tiger Boulevard.

Peachtree Industrial will gain sidewalk, curb and gutter and other drainage improvements on the east side of the road, between North Berkeley Lake Road and Bradford Creek Trail. Sidewalks and curb and gutter improvements will also be installed on the east side of Holcomb Bridge, from Peachtree Corners Circle Road to Smithpointe Drive.

Both projects will be funded with monies from the 2017 special purpose local option sales tax.

Meanwhile, the Pond Road project will include new fire hydrants and curb and gutter and other drainage improvements along with the new water main. This project will be funded by both the SPLOST and funds from the Department of Water Resources.
