Project Description: This project is an intersection improvement in Gwinnett County. The purpose of this project is to improve the operating characteristics of the intersection of SR 8 (Lawrenceville Highway) and Pleasant Hill Road/Lester Road in Gwinnett County, just north of Lilburn. The project will begin approximately 0.43 miles west of Pleasant Hill Road on SR 8 and extend to the off ramps of Ronald Reagan Parkway, about 0.54 miles east of Pleasant Hill Road. Pleasant Hill Road north of SR 8 and Lester Road south of SR 8 will also require some reconstruction as part of the project. The work will place a median on SR 8 in place of the current two-way left turn lane and increase the number of left turn lanes at the intersection. The construction of a new Walmart facility in the project limits will add one new signal at its primary entrance and a new signal will be added at Berkmar School Road at Pleasant Hill Road.
Jobs Summary: This project created/retained skilled jobs in the heavy construction field. The number of FTE jobs reflects those employees working directly on the project, and does not reflect the additional impacts this construction work has on the indirect jobs in the supply chain for heavy construction materials. (Total jobs reported: 0)
