For immediate release
July 30, 2014
Starting tomorrow, Church Street in Lilburn will be closed for about 90 days. Motorists are advised to use Lawrenceville Highway (U.S. 29) or Poplar Street to access Main Street.
The closure is part of the Main Street Realignment Project that kicked off in February and will be finished by the end of the year. The reconfigured Main Street will create a safer, more traditional intersection at Lawrenceville Highway and set the stage for future development. Utilities are being relocated, the roadbed cleared, and the detention pond completed. Church Street will be lowered 8 feet to improve sight distance and safety.
The $3.5-million project is supported by the City of Lilburn, Gwinnett County, the State Road and Tollway Authority, and the Lilburn Community Improvement District. The contractor for the project is E.R. Snell.
