For Immediate Release
A block party to celebrate the opening of the new Main Street Realignment has been postponed until the project is 100 percent complete. Due to weather delays, the project will not be at a stage of completion as of the originally planned date of April 23. The city will reschedule at a later date.
ER Snell Contractor Inc. began construction on the Main Street Realignment in February 2014. The reconfigured Main Street features a safer, more traditional intersection at Lawrenceville Highway. The two roundabouts allow for smoother traffic flow to Old Town. Also, Church Street was lowered eight feet to improve sight distance and safety. The $3.5-million project is supported by the City of Lilburn, Gwinnett County, the State Road and Tollway Authority, and the Lilburn Community Improvement District.
The realignment of Main Street is the first major step toward redevelopment of the city’s center. The road project sets the stage for further development, starting with the future Lilburn City Hall/Gwinnett County Library that will break ground in June.
