SNELLVILLE - Autaco Development LLC is creating a sidewalk from Rockdale Circle to Odum Street.
Providing good weather, the project – a joint effort between the city and county using Special Local Option Sales Tax funds – will be completed next month.
The sidewalks will help to keep students walking to and from South Gwinnett High School safer, city officials said.
The area around the high school has been a focus of sidewalk and intersection improvements in the city in recent years, including at Wisteria Drive and Highway 78 and Skyland Drive. Other sidewalk improvements have been made at Oak Road and Highway 78 and on North Road.
The city is also working to make pedestrian and bicycle travel safer through its recently approved Greenway Master Plan - http://www.snellville.org/greenway-master-plan-gets-approval-by-council.
City officials encourage public input on future sidewalk projects. Send comments to Public Information Officer Brian Arrington at firstname.lastname@example.org.
