Gwinnett to apply for $6.3M state grant for resurfacing contracts

Gwinnett County Commissioners recently voted to apply for $6,389,307 in Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant funds from the Georgia Department of Transportation.

If approved, this grant will help fund the county’s 2018 resurfacing contract. The state funds will be coupled with about $18 million in 2017 SPLOST funds to address resurfacing needs.

This state grant will be used to resurface arterials and other major roads within the county. The 2017 resurfacing contract addresses about 170 miles of roadway, which includes residential streets.
