The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners recently approved an agreement with Fulton County, Duluth and Johns Creek to fund the replacement of the old Rogers Bridge.

Each partner will contribute an estimated $350,000 in matching funds toward the construction of the project which crosses between counties and cities over the Chattahoochee River. These funds will meet the matching requirements from the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Atlanta Regional Commission.

This project will include a pedestrian corridor across the river. Under a previous agreement, each partner also contributed matching funds for the preliminary engineering on the project.

Duluth is managing the replacement, which is currently in the preliminary engineering phase.

District 1 Commissioner Jace Brooks said, “This pedestrian bridge will connect two counties and two cities and augment the recreation opportunities available to individuals and families in those communities.”

Gwinnett’s portion of the funding comes from the 2014 SPLOST.
