Project part of SPLOST funded transportation project.
Getting in and out of the Hog Mountain Road side of Little Mulberry Park may be a little easier and safer now that a new 4-way stop is in place. The intersection improvements, part of the $750,137 Pine Road transportation project, were completed last week. The project also includes curb and gutter, sidewalks and drainage upgrades along Pine Road from Duncan Creek Park on Braselton Highway to Little Mulberry Park. The project was approved in January of this year by the Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners along with a $140,957 sidewalk project on Jim Moore Road between Hamilton Mill Parkway and Highway 324/Auburn Road. Both projects are being funded with 2005 and 2009 SPLOST proceeds.
