Lilburn CID seeks assistance for Highway 29
By Staff Reports
The Lilburn Community Improvement District (CID) is seeking professional support to improve appearance, access and travel along one of Highway 29's busiest sections.
The CID is accepting qualifications from consultants to provide design and planning services to complete the Lawrenceville Highway Urban Design Implementation Study.
The study area includes slightly more than four miles of Highway 29 from Rockbridge Road to Ronald Reagan Parkway. The CID will gain a detailed plan for improving the roadway, bicycle and pedestrian environment through better sidewalk connectivity, signage and streetscape enhancements. CID Executive Director Gerald McDowell said the study is an important part of over-arching efforts to produce a "Boulevard of Opportunity" throughout the greater Lilburn community.
"This study will expand on the exciting initiatives already underway as part of the City of Lilburn's new town center and many other planned improvements," McDowell said. "We will produce a comprehensive guide that covers not only what needs to be accomplished, but also partnership and funding strategies to complete the work."
Interested design and planning professionals are encouraged to access complete details about the study through postings on the CID's website - http://www.lilburncid.com - and the bid section of the Georgia Local Government Access Marketplace at http://www.glga.org.
Qualifications must be submitted to the Lilburn CID by no later than 2 p.m. on Friday, April 18 to be considered.
