Gwinnett officials opened the second section of the first phase of the Sugarloaf Parkway extension to traffic this week. The roadway extends Sugarloaf Parkway from New Hope Road to a new interchange at Martins Chapel Road. The project also includes nearly a mile of upgrades to existing roadways surrounding the extension.
The $24.8-million project features a four-lane divided, limited-access roadway with 26,000 tons of asphalt and 56,000 tons of rock base placed. The bridge over Hiram Davis Road allows local traffic access over Sugarloaf Parkway.
