Omshive Construction LLC was awarded a project to widen Thompson Mill Road near its intersection with State Route 13/Buford Highway. The project will widen Thompson Mill to four lanes with a center turn lane and includes the installation of sidewalks, curb and gutter, and related drainage improvements. The project, not to exceed approximately $1.5 million, is funded by the county and the city of Buford.
An intersection improvement project at Peachtree Industrial Boulevard and Suwanee Dam Road was awarded to Archimetric Design & Construction Inc. The project will add a southbound through lane along Peachtree Industrial from Suwanee Dam to Grand Teton Parkway. Construction includes converting the single left-turn lanes on Suwanee Dam to dual left-turn lanes, along with the installation of new traffic signals. Additional improvements include sidewalk, curb and gutter, and related drainage upgrades. This project cost is not to exceed approximately $2.9 million.
The 2017 SPLOST Program is providing county funding for both projects.
