The Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District and Gwinnett DOT have begun the fifth phase of the Gwinnett Place CID’s Pleasant Hill Road Streetscape project along Pleasant Hill Road from Old Norcross Road to Club Drive in Duluth. The project is expected to be complete in six months. Any lane closures will take place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.
The streetscape enhancements feature a combination of new concrete sidewalks, curbing, enhanced landscaping, brick pavers, benches, trash receptacles, pedestrian plazas and ADA ramps, which will cover about 1.15 miles in length, along Pleasant Hill Road in two locations between Shackelford Road and Club Drive as well as from Old Norcross Road to Satellite Boulevard.
“This project is an effort to enhance our district’s visual appeal and pedestrian safety, says Joe Allen, Gwinnett Place CID executive director. “The installation of these streetscape elements will enhance the area’s walkability,” he added.
In September 2018, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners awarded a contract to CMES, Inc. to construct the project. The project is funded jointly by Gwinnett’s 2009 SPLOST program and Gwinnett Place CID funds.
