Lawrenceville to begin phase 2 of college corridor

Lawrenceville is set to begin construction on phase 2 of its 2.2-mile linear park that will connect Georgia Gwinnett College with the city’s downtown district. The $10 million project will include a 2.2-mile roadway with multi-use trails, bike paths, roundabouts and landscaping. E.R. Snell Contractor, Inc. has been chosen for the work.

“After property acquisition, design and phase I implementation, we are prepared to begin this final phase of this project that will bring about a physical connection to mirror the strong working relationship the city has built with Georgia Gwinnett over the years,” said Lawrenceville Mayor Judy Jordan Johnson.

The new road will begin at the fork of North Clayton Street and Northdale Road and will run between those two roads up to Collins Hill Road and the overpass across Ga. 316 where it will meet the campus of Georgia Gwinnett College.

“We are excited that this project is proceeding, and we look forward to connecting our college campus with Lawrenceville’s vibrant and active downtown,” said Dr. Jann L. Joseph, president of Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC). “This project remains important to GGC and we are thankful to our partners at the city for remaining ever-dedicated to this joint vision for the future.”
