The Lilburn Community Improvement District is working with property owners and city leaders on long-range plans to substantially enhance Lilburn Industrial Way. Preliminary planning will begin soon for reconstructing the road to better accommodate tractor-trailers and other vehicles accessing the area’s commercial operations.
Reconstruction improvements will include curbs and gutters, stormwater drainage, resurfacing and striping, roadway lighting and a more durable roadway pavement to accommodate heavy trucks. The project will also focus on increasing the turning radius at the Killian Hill and Lilburn Industrial Boulevard intersection as well as reconstruction of driveways to accommodate the movement of larger trucks and tractor-trailers.
The CID will also evaluate the need for a traffic signal at the intersection with Killian Hill and provide the analysis to Gwinnett County for their review and decision. The construction improvements will be funded by the city’s 2016 SPLOST allocation. The planning and design plan development is funded through a combination of Lilburn CID funds and Gwinnett County’s 2009 SPLOST.
At the same time, the CID is meeting with Lilburn Industrial Way property owners to discuss necessary individual improvements such as fencing repairs and debris removal.
