Gwinnett citizens have the opportunity to influence the county’s future transportation options by attending one of the public meetings on the latest update to the Gwinnett County’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan. In 2016, the County and its consultants solicited input from public meetings, stakeholder interviews, online surveys, and community meetings. With the community’s guidance, they have created goals and identified potential projects and investments. Now, they want community feedback to see if they’re on the right track.
When completed, the plan will serve as a guide for how the County will prioritize its resources for transportation improvements through 2040, whether it be major road widening, intersection improvements, trails, or transit.
Please take a moment from your current commute, stop by one of the meetings, and let the County know what you think. You may drop in at any time, pick up a passport, and visit one of the themed stations to share your views on what would be the best ways to get around Gwinnett. There will be a brief presentation, and maps and helpful staff to answer your questions.
