GDOT seeks input on widening I-85 in Gwinnett County


The Georgia Department of Transportation will hold two public information meetings to discuss the proposed Interstate 85 widening project in Gwinnett. The first will be held 4 to 7 p.m. Dec. 6 at Mill Creek High School Media Center, 4400 Braselton Highway in Hoschton. The second meeting will be 4 to 7 p.m. Dec. 8 at the Braselton Community Room, 5040 Highway 53 in Braselton.

The length of both projects combined is approximately 24 miles. The proposed projects would widen and reconstruct approximately 12.7 miles of I-85 from north of Interstate 985 to just north of State Route 211 and 11.3 miles of I-85 from just north of State Route 211 to just north of U.S. 129.

The proposed project would use the existing right-of-way width to accommodate the widening. The typical section will be expanded from two lanes to three lanes in each direction. The existing grassed median along the 6.4-mile section of I-85 from Hamilton Mill Road/CR 134 to SR 211 will be replaced with a median barrier and 9-foot to 12-foot inside shoulders.

The project also proposes to replace four I-85 overpass bridges at Spout Springs Road, Flowery Branch Road, Jesse Cronic Road and SR 332. The project proposes to close the overpass bridges for replacement and detour traffic during construction.
