City of Lawrenceville Completes Slip Ramp Access to Northside Hospital Gwinnett

New Exit Lane SR316 and SR120

The City of Lawrenceville has worked with the Georgia Department of Transportation and Northside Hospital Gwinnett since July 2022 to add a slip ramp at State Route (SR) 316 at SR 120.  The project adds a separate exit lane (slip ramp) from Eastbound State Route (SR) 316 at SR 120, providing direct access to the Northside Hospital Gwinnett complex. Now complete, the ramp is scheduled to open at 9 am on Wednesday, September 20.

Chuck Warbington, City Manager, stated, "Northside Hospital Gwinnett has been an excellent community partner with the City of Lawrenceville. We appreciate their leadership's willingness to entertain our suggestion to implement a slip ramp concept during their hospital campus renovations. Ensuring convenient access to quality healthcare is a crucial element for every community. This project has accomplished that objective while also averting further congestion on Pike Street."

City of Lawrenceville worked with CHA Consulting, Inc. as the designer, Ohmshive Construction, LLC as the contractor, and Atlas as the construction manager. The total project cost is $2,144,586 and includes 0.41 miles of grading, curb and gutter, sidewalk, drainage, and asphalt paving.  

“One of the key challenges in healthcare today is access, whether it is the ability to see a physician or obtain hospital services.  The slip lane entrance to Northside Hospital Gwinnett will provide “ease of access” to the many services Northside Hospital Gwinnett offers,” said Jay Dennard, Chief Operating Officer of Northside Hospital Duluth and Vice President of Physician Service for Northside Gwinnett System. “Additionally, the slip ramp will improve safety, reduce travel congestion, and minimize travel barriers.  We are so thankful to the leadership of both the City of Lawrenceville and the Georgia Department of Transportation in their partnership of this crucial project that assists Northside Hospital Gwinnett in providing access to quality healthcare for those we are privileged to serve.”

In addition, the Georgia Department of Transportation recently announced a $5.9 million project to install a median on Duluth Highway east of State Route 316. A start date has not been announced for the project, which will also include sidewalks and curb and gutter improvements.

“This project will also work in tandem with the GDOT median project on Pike Street,” said Warbington.  “The combination of both of these projects will significantly reduce congestion and approve safety to commuters in the area.”

Message boards informing the public of the ramp opening date are in place.  For additional information about the City of Lawrenceville and Northside Hospital Gwinnett, visit their websites and follow them on social media.
