Gwinnett Place: Green Light for Pedestrians
Gwinnett’s “main street,” Pleasant Hill Road, begins its next phase of transformation and remaking. Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District (GPCID) executive director Joe Allen tells us that one of the main goals is to make the street walkable, safe and aesthetically pleasing. Phase 4, currently under construction, enhances the sidewalk areas along Pleasant Hill Road from the intersection of Venture Drive to Satellite Boulevard with new pedestrian lighting, landscaped plazas, park benches and trash receptacles. Once completed, streetscapes will then be in place along Pleasant Hill Road from Club Drive to Satellite Boulevard. (One phase along Satellite has already been completed with another phase to begin soon). Funding for Pleasant Hill Road’s transformation was provided by Gwinnett County, Transportation Enhancement Grants and the GPCID. Anticipated completion of Phase 4 is May 2015.
