Lilburn CID receives SPLOST funding for transportation projects

The Gwinnett Board of Commissioners recently approved the Lilburn Community Improvement District’s requests for traffic and safety improvements with the support of Gwinnett’s Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax funding.

The approved projects represent a collective value in excess of $25 million and are funded partially through the county’s 2016 SPLOST along with funds from the Georgia DOT, City of Lilburn and the Lilburn CID. All projects were recommended for funding by the Citizens Project Selection Committee.

Improvements include the widening of Killian Hill from Arcado Road to Church Street, new turn lanes at Highway 29 at Jimmy Carter, ramp improvements at Highway 29 at Ronald Reagan Parkway and sidewalks and a pedestrian crossing at Pleasant Hill Road at Ronald Reagan Parkway.

Additional projects are planned for Highway 29 at Rockbridge Road, Highway 29 and Luxomni Road, Lilburn Industrial Way and Jimmy Carter Boulevard.

In addition to these roadway improvements, the Citizens Project Selection Committee recommended funding sidewalk projects to enhance pedestrian access from residential to commercial areas at Jimmy Carter Boulevard from Highway 29 to Club Parkway, Rockbridge Road from Dickens Road to Arrowind Road and Indian Trail Road from Hillcrest to Exchange Place.
