Gwinnett Department of Transportation will begin soon to convert two busy intersections into roundabouts — one at Ridgedale Drive and Pharrs Road in Snellville and one at Venture Drive and Day Drive in Duluth.

In addition to the roundabout, the $1.4 million Ridgedale Drive project includes right-turn lanes on both approaches of Ridgedale Drive at North Road. This project is funded by the 2014 and 2017 SPLOST programs and the city of Snellville.

The $2 million Venture Drive roundabout will include a second eastbound through-lane on Venture Drive and will lengthen the southbound left-turn lane at the intersection of Venture Drive and Steve Reynolds Boulevard. Construction for this project is funded by the 2017 SPLOST and the Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District.
