The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners on Aug. 16 approved a contract to build sidewalks on Killian Hill Road from Sandra Drive to Nantucket Drive near Trickum Middle School.
“I am so pleased to get this project under way because it will improve pedestrian safety along this busy roadway,” said District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard.
CMES Inc. was the lowest of five responsive bids at $745,558. The project will install just over a mile of sidewalk, curb and gutter and drainage improvements on the north side of Killian Hill Road. Construction is expected to be complete by early 2017.
The project is funded by the 2009 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) Program. Additional information about these and other SPLOST road improvement projects can be found on the County’s website at www.gwinnettcounty.com.
