Not only is a new SPLOST in effect in Gwinnett County these days, county leaders actually have released a list as to how those monies might be spent.
Collections for the 2014 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax went into effect on April 1, after being voted in last November.
And in the Suwanee area, some notably troublesome intersections and stretches of roads could be in for some improvements.
According to information released this week, and published online, some proposed changes in Suwanee are:
- Peachtree Industrial Boulevard from McGinnis Ferry Road to Moore Road could go from 4 to 6 lanes;
- McGinnis Ferry Road at I-85 could become an interchange (currently, there are no freeway entrance or exit ramps here);
- Peachtree Industrial Boulevard at Suwanee Dam Road intersection is targeted for inprovement.
And these thoroughfares affect traffic flow in such continguous areas as Duluth, Sugar Hill and Lawrenceville.
Many other roads, intersections and bridges in Gwinnett also are in line for improvements. The complete list is here.
