State Sen. P.K. Martin, a Republican from Lawrenceville, wants his Gwinnett County constituents to know that — and he’ll be holding a public meeting on the topic later this month. The meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. on Aug. 28, comes after a recent series of high-profile, traffic-clogging incidents on the highway that crosses through the Duluth, Lawrenceville and Dacula areas.
The meeting will be held at the Dacula Park activity building, located at 2735 Auburn Ave. in Dacula. Gwinnett County Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash, other state legislators and representatives from state and county transportation departments are expected to attend.
