The roundabout at Venture Drive and Day Drive in the Gwinnett Place area is now fully operational.
“We are excited that the roundabout is ready for drivers and are already seeing it help alleviate traffic in the area,” said Joe Allen, Executive Director, Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District.
According to research by the U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration, roundabouts result in a 35 percent reduction in crashes, 76 percent reduction in injuries and more than 90 percent reduction in fatalities. Roundabouts also are safer for cyclists and pedestrians.
Gwinnett Place CID has created a video to showing how to properly use the new roundabout: www.tinyurl.com/VentureRoundabout.
The roundabout is one of three projects planned by the Gwinnett Place CID to help alleviate traffic on Venture Drive. The Gwinnett Place Drive/Pleasant Hill Road intersection improvement project was completed in 2017. The second project is Venture Drive at Steve Reynolds Boulevard Intersection Improvement Project.
The projects are funded by SPLOST, Gwinnett Place CID and the State Road and Tollway Authority. Ohmshiv Construction is contracted to complete the project this fall.
