Suwanee to open new section of greenway system

Suwanee officials will unveil the new Brushy Creek Greenway 5 p.m. Friday at the greenway entrance at PlayTown Suwanee, 425 Main Street. The path is a one-mile multi-use trail that will connect Suwanee Dam Road at Delay Road to Stonecypher Road near Main Street.

A combination of concrete and boardwalk, the heavily wooded trail will follow the Brushy Creek corridor and brings Suwanee’s greenway system to three miles.

The Master Plan also calls for a greenway connection from Stonecypher Road south to McGinnis Ferry Road, a link that will also occur along Brushy Creek, helping to improve connections among residential areas, Old Town and Town Center.

Eighty percent was paid for with Transportation Enhancement Grant funds from GDOT, with the remaining 20 percent coming from SPLOST and the general fund. Access and parking for the greenway is currently off of Main Street and PlayTown Suwanee.
