The north side of Miller Road will get new curb, gutter and sidewalks for seven-tenths of a mile, between Cole Drive and Hambrick Drive. Gwinnett commissioners awarded the $458,029 contract on Tuesday to ISC, Inc., the lowest of nine bidders. Work can begin in 60 days and should be finished by next fall.
“This work completes a key safety project we promised as part of the SPLOST sales tax program,” District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard said, “And it’s a much-needed improvement to this important pedestrian route to the three schools in the Parkview complex on Cole Drive.”
In separate action, commissioners approved an agreement with the city of Lilburn to share resources on a project to build a new three-lane roadway that would relocate Main Street from U.S. 29/Lawrenceville Highway to the proposed new city hall and library at Church Street. The project is funded by the 2009 SPLOST and includes intersection upgrades at Church Street, Main Street and Young Street. The city will provide all preliminary engineering and land acquisition, and Gwinnett County will manage construction.
