The intersection is one of the projects identified for improvements on a list that also includes the heavily traveled Buford Highway and Jimmy Carter Boulevard intersection and Holcomb Bridge Road and Jimmy Carter Boulevard.
City Manager Julian Jackson presented a list of nine potential roads and intersections in Peachtree Corners that have been identified as needing improvements. The funding would come from SPLOST, which voters approved to renew for three more years last fall.
The list has been narrowed down to the following three projects which would be funded in a joint project with Gwinnett County.
- Peachtree Parkway (S.R. 141) at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard
- Buford Highway and Jimmy Carter Boulevard
- Holcomb Bridge Road and Jimmy Carter Boulevard
A major portion of the cost for the projects would come from Gwinnett County, who is sharing $25 million SPLOST funds it has set aside with the county's 16 cities. The amount each city receives is based on population.
"These strategies are great," said Mayor Mike Mason. "They are highly leverageable with GDOT which means we get the biggest bang for our community."
The meeting also included the swearing in of re-elected council members Jay Lowe (Post 2), Jeanne Aulbach (Post 4) and Weare Gratwick (Post 6).
