Duluth and Johns Creek started planning for the project after completing a bridge condition survey in 2014, gathering feedback from residents and spending about four years on pre-construction, Pozin said.
Construction on the project will cost about $7.2 million, with $5.1 million coming from the Atlanta Regional Commission and $700,000 from the Georgia Department of Transportation. Duluth, Johns Creek, Gwinnett County and Fulton County will each put $350,000 toward construction costs. The partners also spent about $700,000 on pre-construction and design costs for the new bridge.
