Scenic Highway

GDOT looking for input on future Scenic Highway widening project

The Georgia Department of Transportation is in the beginning stages of project development for the widening of Scenic Highway from Highway 78 to Sugarloaf Parkway and is looking for input on how the project will affect environmental, economic and social concerns in the area.
There is no immediate timeline for this project.

The Alexander Oak

The giant oak that looked out on Scenic Highway from its place in the 91 acres Alexander Park is gone now, and that big oak tree was probably just an acorn when Gwinnett became a Georgia county in 1818. Through the years after the oak became a big tree and a landmark on the Alexander property it has seen all kinds of weather and over a century of changes in the Alexander family and Gwinnett County.
