Long sought after traffic signal may finally be coming to Duluth

Duluth has been trying to get approval for a traffic signal at State Route 120 and George Rogers/Duluth High School for many years. Several studies have been completed, many meetings attended, and multiple solutions discussed. At a recent meeting with the State Traffic Engineer, the city was finally granted permission to move forward with the signal.

A complete and final traffic study will be submitted to GDOT for approval and the city has engaged the services of an on-call traffic engineer to design the signal to GCDOT and GDOT’s specifications. Wolverton & Associates will design the signal for $10,329 including all necessary coordination with the previous traffic engineer, DHS plans for a new driveway, Gwinnett DOT, Georgia DOT general office and district office, and the city.

Once approved by the City Council in April, the Wolverton & Associates will begin design for completion within three months.

This project is on the city’s current approved joint city/county SPLOST list and will be funded 81 percent by Gwinnett and 19 percent by Duluth.
