There is a lot happening in the City of Lilburn! Here is a list of upcoming, ongoing, and recently completed construction projects:
- Lilburn City Park Improvements: Lilburn residents will soon be getting a new playground in Lilburn City Park and more parking to serve the park and downtown. New restrooms will also be constructed. The playground equipment, including a separate toddler area, will be installed at the current playground location close to the new parking. The playground is currently CLOSED while the old equipment is removed, site work is completed, and new equipment is installed. Due to the scope of this project, the new, expanded playground area will be closed for several weeks. All construction will be funded by the 2017-2023 SPLOST, the one-cent sales tax approved by voters. Click here for more information.
- Camp Creek Greenway: The city has replaced the 988-foot wooden bridge on the west side of Main Street with PermaTrak, a low-maintenance, pre-cast concrete boardwalk product. Although grading and other work is still being finished, the structure is complete and the greenway was reopened to the public on August 11. A ribbon cutting will be scheduled for September.

- Police and Municipal Court Facility: Design has been completed for the building and site for a new home for the police department and municipal court. The groundbreaking ceremony took place on Monday, August 13, 2018. Construction time is expected to be twelve months.
- HAWK Pedestrian Signal: Design is complete for a new High-intensity Activated Crosswalk (HAWK) system soon to be installed on Killian Hill Road. The HAWK system is a traffic control device that provides pedestrians a safer crossing. Pedestrians activate the signal to cross, so it only stops vehicular traffic as needed. The HAWK pedestrian signal is a jointly funded SPLOST project with Gwinnett County and will be installed on Killian Hill Road near Shelley Lane.

- Office/Distribution Facility on Indian Trail Lilburn Road: Construction of a 350,000-square-foot office/distribution facility by Taylor & Mathis Properties is being constructed at 550 Indian Trail Lilburn Road.
