Lawrenceville Begins Construction on the College Corridor

City Seal

Lawrenceville, Gwinnett County, Ga – May 2, 2018 – The City of Lawrenceville, together with contractor Georgia Development Partners, have begun construction of the 2.2-mile linear park that will connect Georgia Gwinnett College with the Downtown District. The scope of work includes construction of roadways and streetscapes in the immediate downtown and train depot areas. Road and lane closures are expected for the next several months along Clayton Street, Perry Street and Depot Street in the Downtown and historic Train Depot areas.

“We are excited to begin the work on this project to connect the college with our downtown,” said Chuck Warbington, Lawrenceville city manager. “Though traffic will be delayed for a time, with the addition of this roadway, widened lanes in some areas and improved walking amenities, the end result will be a more efficient means of getting from downtown to Hwy 316, the College and other points north and west of the city. We thank the public for your patience and support as we work to improve the community overall.”

Plans for the 2.2-mile linear park include a two-lane road, multi-use trails, bike paths, roundabouts and attractive landscaping features. The corridor will begin at the intersection of SR316 and Collins Hill and run parallel to Northdale Road, in between Northdale and North Clayton Streets. Phase One construction is expected to be complete in late fall of 2018. Be sure to subscribe to the city’s text alerts for the most up-to-date information on construction in the downtown and follow us on Facebook for the latest news and activity.
