The Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District (CID) strives to increase connections throughout the community in all modes of transport. A recently completed project along Buford Highway not only improves the safety and connectivity for pedestrians, but provides an aesthetic boost for this part of Peachtree Corners as well.

The project was the second phase of  construction that added sidewalks and landscaping from the DeKalb County line to Jimmy Carter Boulevard.. The project also includes work on the curb and gutter and crosswalks at four intersections along the stretch.

“The Buford Highway corridor has one of the highest concentrations of pedestrian traffic in our area,” said Chuck Warbington, executive director for the Gwinnett Village CID. “From a pedestrian safety and connectivity perspective this project was a high priority for us.”

The project, which was just over $1 million, was funded through a combination of Gwinnett County, Georgia Department of Transportation and CID funds.

“We’re delighted that Gwinnett Village CID worked to have the new sidewalk and landscaping installed on this portion of Buford Highway which is an important gateway to our city,” said Peachtree Corners Councilmember Phil Sadd (Post 1). “The addition improves safety, walkability for pedestrians and aesthetics for the area.”
