Construction Projects

There is a lot happening in the City of Lilburn! Here is a list of upcoming, ongoing, and recently completed construction projects:


  • Calvin Fitchett Pavilion: A new open air pavilion is under construction in Lilburn City Park. The pavilion is located where the former City Hall/Police Headquarters facility was located in Old Town. Lichty Commercial Construction, Inc., is the construction contractor for this $1,040,000 project funded by the City's Capital Project Fund. The new facility will feature public restrooms with changing areas and storage and a green room in the basement for performers. The grand opening is planned for late Summer 2021.pavilion
  • Splash Pad: Design is complete, and the contract has been awarded for the construction of a 40-foot splash pad near the new open air pavilion. The splash pad will feature a heritage sculpture, 12 arch jets, and 6 LED jumping stream jets circulating 100 gallons of recycled water per minute. The splash pad will open with the Calvin Fitchett Pavilion in late Summer 2021.Splash pad_Bucket Brigade
  • Lilburn City Park Improvements: The new playground opened in 2019 at Lilburn City Park! The playground includes separate areas for younger and older children, brand new equipment, and a softer playing surface. Multiple ground level activities and a padded artificial playground grass provide for improved accessibility. The playground features several multi-purpose walls that provide a visible and physical perimeter and can be used for seating. A new parking lot, restroom building, small pavilion, and stroller parking pad were also recently added to the park. Soon guests will be able to enjoy a new open air pavilion near the band shell, a splash pad, and a new passive park area near the Gartrell Nash Pavilion. Landscape installation in the park area will be phased in over time.Park landscape plan
  • Police and Municipal Court Facility: The new Lilburn Police Department and Municipal Court Complex opened in March 2020. The new 27,000 sq. ft. building is located at 4600 Lawrenceville Highway.City of Lilburn Police Department and Municipal Court
  • HAWK Pedestrian Signal: Installation is complete for a new High-intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) system on Killian Hill Road near Shelley Lane. The HAWK system is a traffic control device that provides pedestrians a safer crossing. Pedestrians activate the signal to cross, so it only stops vehicular traffic as needed. The HAWK pedestrian signal is a jointly funded SPLOST project with Gwinnett County.
  • Wynne-Russell Road Improvements: The City of Lilburn received a $600,000 Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) to install new sidewalks and street lights along Wynne-Russell Road from Lawrenceville Highway to West Johns Road, and down a portion of West Johns Road. The project was completed in June 2021.
