The bicycle and pedestrian connectivity study covers the Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Indian Trail Road corridors in the greater Norcross area.
After months of researching possible bicycle and pedestrian routes for the Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Indian Trail Road corridors in the greater Norcross area, the Gwinnett Village CID has created a projects list that's on its way for finalization. And that list is pretty long: 71 projects, to be exact. "It's looking at the intersections and crossings, connections to transit, connections to the commercial properties in this area, and connecting the LCI communities and connecting to the city," said Alyssa Sinclair, project manager for Gwinnett Village. "This is looking [at the] big picture, where people want to go when they're walking and they're riding bicycles." While the study is a 20- to 30-year plan, six of the 71 projects are on a …

The $1.5 million CID project aims to ease traffic congestion, improve safety and make the area look better.
There will soon be a median on Indian Trail Road from Beaver Ruin Road to Oakbrook Parkway. The purpose of the project is to ease up the traffic flow at the busy I-85 on ramp and beautify the area, while also improving safety because people will not have to jut across traffic to make a left-hand turn. “Any time you drive down that corridor at peak times, you see the need,” said Chuck Warbington, Executive Director of the Gwinnett Village CID, which is heading up the project. The project is currently underway and will likely wrap up by the end of the summer. The landscaped median will look similar to the current medians on Beaver Ruin Road, with low-lying plants and annuals planted in the raised concrete medians. The intersection at Brook …
