The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Tuesday approved a new bike and pedestrian trail connection in Lilburn.
The new .8-mile trail will link Lions Club Park to the 2-mile Camp Creek Greenway in Lilburn. The new trail includes a 700-foot boardwalk and a 60-foot-long concrete underpass at Rockbridge Road along Camp Creek.
Commissioners awarded a $260,000 contract to low bidder Astra Group Inc. for the work. Construction is expected to take about 90 days.
