County Approves SPLOST Funding for Arcado Road Intersection
In February, the city of Lilburn approved funding for this project, as well.
The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved an agreement Tuesday that moves forward improvements for Arcado Road.
Specifically, the improvements are for the intersection of Arcado Road and Camp Creek Road/Cole Road. The project includes upgrades to pedestrian safety, crosswalks, and the mast arm of the traffic signal.
The county has agreed to pay half of the $130,000 project cost using SPLOST funds that were re-allocated in January. In February, the city of Lilburn approved the other half of the funding, not to exceed $65,000.

Construction is expected to begin June 2013, according to the city of Lilburn. The Gwinnett County Department of Transportation will manage construction.
"Pedestrians and drivers alike will benefit from the upgrades that will include crosswalks, ramps and pedestrian signals,” said District 2 Commissioner Lynette Howard. "Entering into another transportation improvement agreement with Lilburn so soon tells me that city officials are as committed as we are to a safer and more livable community."
