Project Description: This is a new roadway construction project in Gwinnett County. This proposed project will connect to the existing intersection of McGinnis Ferry Road and Satellite Boulevard, with only minor improvements to Satellite Boulevard and McGinnis Ferry Road. The roadway will continue east where Burnette Road will be widened to 4-lanes, with a 20-foot raised median and a 16-foot shoulder (5-foot sidewalk) on the south side and a 20-foot shoulder (10-foot wide mixed-use facility) on the same typical section. The bridge over I-85 will be constructed to provide for future additional laneage on I-85 and for a possible future interchange at McGinnis Ferry Extension. The bridge length will accommodate a barrier separated HOV lane with exit, 4 SOV lanes, collector-distributor lanes, and ramps. McGinnis Ferry Extension will connect to Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road east of Old Peachtree Road. Minor improvements will be necessary to provide for turning movements at this intersection.
Infrastructure Description: To invest in transportation, environmental protection, and other infrastructure that will provide long-term economic benefits.
