The streetscape enhancements feature a combination of new concrete sidewalks, curbing, enhanced landscaping, brick pavers, benches, trash receptacles, pedestrian plazas and ADA ramps, which will cover about 1.15 miles in length, along Pleasant Hill Road in two locations between Shackelford Road and Club Drive as well as from Old Norcross Road to Satellite Boulevard.
“This project is an effort to enhance our district’s visual appeal and pedestrian safety, says Joe Allen, executive director – GPCID. “The installation of these streetscape elements will enhance the area’s walkability,” he added.
In September 2018, the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners awarded a contract to CMES, Inc. to construct the project. The project is funded jointly by Gwinnett County’s 2009 SPLOST program and GPCID funds.
“We are grateful for our partnership with the Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District and for Gwinnett voters who enabled this project to happen by approving the SPLOST sales tax,” said Jace Brooks, District 1 commissioner.
Pleasant Hill Road streetscape project phases one to four have been completed over the past eight years, including the installation of pedestrian lighting and new LED streetlights. Learn more at gwinnettplacecid.com/ projects/streetscape-intersection/.
