Gwinnett, Forsyth counties designated $20 million in infrastructure and transportation bill

“It’s important to create a different way of being able to get around so you don’t have to drive downtown,” Bourdeaux said. “… They don’t have to park, so it increases mobility (and) public health. It’s a great amenity for economic development purposes.”

Other projects designated by Bourdeaux focus on improving access to public transit in the suburbs. Gwinnett County Department of Transportation would receive funds to build a park-and-ride lot near Lawrenceville and create a bus line to connect Gwinnett Place Mall, Sugarloaf Mills and the Mall of Georgia.

About 1.5 million people rode Gwinnett public transit each year prior to the pandemic, said Lewis Cooksey, director of the county’s transportation department. More and more people are showing an interest in public transportation to the busy mall areas as they continue to grow with development, he said.

Bourdeaux authored the Solar Use Network Act, included as part of the INVEST in America Act. This would allow interstate right-of-ways to be used for renewable energy projects, such as the installation of solar panels embedded in roads in Peachtree Corners to power electric charging stations.

The projects supported by the INVEST in America Act could help lower pollution and decrease the number of cars on traffic-heavy roads, Bourdeaux said. “As Gwinnett and Forsyth grow, they have to be more efficient about how they move people around,” she said.

The following projects could receive funding from the INVEST in America Act:

  • Park-and-ride lot for Ga. 316 at Collins Industrial Way/Ga. 20 near Lawrenceville: $4.8 million
  • Gwinnett Place Transit Center/Mall of Georgia local bus service: $5 million
  • McDaniel Farm Park Connector multi-use path: $2 million
  • Ga. 20 pedestrian bridge in Sugar Hill: $5 million
  • Big Creek Greenway renovation in Cumming: $3 million
