Sidewalks to Make North Berkeley Lake Road Safer
Project includes sidewalks, curb, gutter and improvements to the roadside shoulders along North Berkeley Lake Road west of Lakeshore Drive to Bush Road.
Under a contract approved Tuesday (Nov. 6) by the Gwinnett County Commission, more sidewalks will be built soon along North Berkeley Lake Road.
The pedestrian safety project includes sidewalks, curb, gutter and improvements to the roadside shoulders along North Berkeley Lake Road west of Lakeshore Drive to Bush Road.
When this project and the City of Berkeley Lake’s dam reconstruction project are complete, sidewalks will run continuously from Peachtree Industrial Boulevard to Bush Road along North Berkeley Lake Road and along Bush Road from North Berkeley Lake Road to Medlock Bridge Road, according to a press release issued by the county.
Johnson Landscapes Inc., d/b/a Vertical Earth of Cumming, was the lowest of six bidders at $455,269. The project is being funded by the 2009 SPLOST program.
Construction is anticipated to be complete in mid-2013.
“This project ties together a network of pedestrian facilities to enhance the quality of life in this part of the county,” Gwinnett DOT Director Kim Conroy said in the press release.
