Sidewalks completed along busy stretch of Buford Highway

The Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District has completed a project along Buford Highway to improve safety and connectivity for pedestrians, as well as provide an aesthetic boost for the area.

The project was the second phase of construction to add sidewalks and landscaping from the DeKalb County line to Jimmy Carter Boulevard along Buford Highway. The project also includes work on the curb and gutter and crosswalks at four intersections along the stretch.

“The Buford Highway corridor has one of the highest concentrations of pedestrian traffic in our area,” said Chuck Warbington, executive director for the Gwinnett Village CID. “From a pedestrian safety and connectivity perspective this project was a high priority for us.”

The project, which cost a little more than $1 million, was funded through a combination of Gwinnett County, Georgia Department of Transportation and CID funds.
