Downtown Lawrenceville streets to go from one-way to two-way in July


Lawrenceville is alerting drivers now to prepare for the two-way conversion of Perry Street and Clayton Street set to begin on July 9. The changeover on Perry and Clayton Streets from Pike Street south to the merge will take place over several weeks beginning July 9 based on the amount of work accomplished by crews on the previous night. During the conversion, drivers are advised to be patient, cautious, informed and aware. All construction work and estimated timelines are weather permitting.

“The two-way conversion project represents an important step in the city’s vision of moving Lawrenceville forward,” said City of Lawrenceville City Manager Chuck Warbington. “The two-way streets will benefit all of those who live, work, play and visit Lawrenceville’s downtown by providing increased connectivity, better navigation, and pedestrian safety.”

The Atlanta Regional Commission’s LCI program encourages local governments to create plans that link transportation improvements with land use development strategies to create mixed-use communities.
