The Gwinnett Board of Commissioners recently awarded a contract to build a new bridge over the Alcovy River and the installation of a multi-use path along New Hope Road in Lawrenceville.
Commissioners awarded the project to CMES Inc. for an amount not to exceed $6,041,798.
Contractors will replace the existing bridge and improve the alignment of New Hope Road at the approaches to the bridge. The new structure will also provide more clearance between the river and bridge deck to help address flooding issues in the area. The multi-use path will extend from Callie Still Road to Alcovy River Drive.
Curb and gutter and other drainage improvements will be installed as part of these projects, which stretch for about 1.6 miles.
CMES was the lowest of four responsive bidders on the group of projects, which is funded by the 2009 and 2014 SPLOST programs.
