At Issue: What intersections in Gwinnett County are driving you nuts?


For the past few weeks, Gwinnett citizens have been invited to participate in a series of public meetings to help shape the county’s comprehensive transportation plan, a blueprint that will steer its roadway investments through 2040.

The fifth, and final of this series of meetings will be held 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Monday at George Pierce Park Community Room, 55 Buford Highway NE in Suwanee. Many of the potential projects discussed will require joint efforts among city, county and state transportation agencies and rely on millions of dollars to reach fruition.

At the same time, several major intersection improvement projects are slated to begin soon. U.S. Highway 78 at State Route 124/Scenic Highway in Snellville is about to undergoing a major overhaul creating a continuous flow intersection.

In Peachtree Corners, construction will begin soon to create an additional southbound lane on Peachtree Parkway from Holcomb Bridge Road onto State Route 141/Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and an additional southbound lane on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard onto Winters Chapel Road.

Gwinnett residents voted again in the fall to approve a one-percent Special Local Option Sales Tax that is expected to generate $950 million over the next six years. Of those tax dollars, $486.3 million will fund transportation projects in unincorporated Gwinnett. Millions more will be available to Gwinnett cities for additional or joint transportation projects.

Even if you haven’t attended a transportation meeting, you probably have your own intersection frustrations. Where do you sit in traffic the longest? Which intersections have you using profanity and longing for traffic relief? Send comments to communitynews@ajc.com. Responses may be published in print and/or online.

Q&A on the News

Q: Regarding the United passenger who was pulled off the plane for refusing to give up his seat, I thought it was a federal crime to disobey any orders from a flight crew. If so, couldn’t United have simply told this passenger quietly that if he did not give up his seat, he would be arrested when he got off the plane at his destination? &mdash...
