Snellville, here’s your chance to help fix Gwinnett’s traffic woes

Gwinnett County will sponsor the latest in a series of public meetings on the county’s future transportation needs in Snellville tonight.

The meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Snellville City Hall Council Chambers, 2342 Oak Road SW.

Gwinnett is gathering public input as it prepares a plan for short-term and long-term transportation improvements. Short-term projects may be funded if voters renew a 1 percent sales tax for construction projects in November. A long-term plan – think 25 years – will follow early next year.

Some of the conversation has revolved around mass transit, which remains controversial in Georgia's second-largest county. But the hearings also have sought public input on road, bike and pedestrian improvements.

You can find more information on Gwinnett's transportation plan and take an online survey here. If you can't make tonight's meeting, there are two more chances to have your say in person:

*6 p.m. to 8 p.m. April 18 at the Dacula Park Activity Building, 2735 Old Auburn Ave., Dacula.

*6 p.m. to 8 p.m. April 21 at the Gwinnett County Department of Planning and Development, One Justice Square, 446 W. Crogan St., Lawrenceville.
