Construction is complete on the new PermaTrak concrete boardwalk on the Camp Creek Greenway Trail in Lilburn. The 958-foot boardwalk is the longest PermaTrak project in the country that is supported on the helical pier foundation system, which consists of steel piles screwed into the soil to a specified torque.
“The public can enjoy running, walking, and cycling on this new boardwalk for the next 50 years,” said Lilburn Planning and Development Director Doug Stacks.
Construction began April 30 and was completed in less than four months, ahead of schedule and under budget. The trail reopened Aug. 11. An official ribbon cutting will take place at 6 p.m. Oct. 8 at the start of the boardwalk, near Velva Court. The public is invited to attend.
PermaTrak is a low maintenance, pre-cast concrete product projected to last more than fifty years. This is the second PermaTrak installation on the 4.2-mile greenway. The project was funded through SPLOST with Gwinnett contributing $509,228 to the total cost.
