Gwinnett's Board of Commissioners approved Tuesday a nearly $1.5 million contract to build a sidewalk along a well-traveled thoroughfare.

The roughly 1.4-mile sidewalk will run along Rockbridge Road in the Stone Mountain area, stretching between Five Forks-Trickum Road and E. Park Place Boulevard. Gwinnett Department of Transportation director Alan Chapman said Tuesday that the sidewalk will connect residential communities in the area to nearby businesses.

The project will be paid for using money from the 2009 special-purpose local option sales tax.

CMES, Inc. was the low bidder and will complete the work. The contract is not to exceed $1,486,449.
