Gwinnett, Peachtree Corners agree on sidewalk project

Crooked Creek Road will get new curb, gutter and sidewalk, pedestrian crosswalks and drainage improvements thanks to an agreement between Gwinnett County and Peachtree Corners. Commissioners approved the plan on July 15.

The project will add sidewalk to the east side of Crooked Creek Road between Jay Bird Alley and the entrance to Mary Our Queen Catholic Church where it will connect to existing sidewalk.

The city and the county will each pay half of the estimated $375,000 project cost and the Gwinnett DOT will manage the engineering, right-of-way acquisition and construction. County funds will come from the 2005 SPLOST program while the city will use a grant from the state DOT.

“I’m happy our local governments can work together to make visible improvements for the safety and convenience of residents,” said District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard. “This new section of sidewalk combined with other projects in the area will link several neighborhoods to Peachtree Elementary School and improve pedestrian safety.”
