Lilburn starting construction on new $4.89M police headquarters

The city of Lilburn will break ground on its new police department headquarters on Aug. 13.

The facility will cost $4,899,000 and will be paid for entirely by SPLOST funds, according to the city. It will also house a new municipal court, the city’s website says.

The new building will be more visible to the community, sitting at 4572 Lawrenceville Highway, the city said in a press release. The new location is more highly trafficked than where the current police headquarters is, on Main Street near Lilburn City Park and the Camp Creek Greenway Trail. 

BM&K Construction was awarded the bid for this project, and previously built the Lilburn City Hall and Library building, which was completed in 2016. No anticipated completion date for the new police headquarters has been announced.
