Sidewalk construction

Sidewalk project begins Monday

Preliminary work for sidewalk construction is scheduled to begin Monday, March 5, along Hillcrest Road between Indian Trail and Burns roads. The contractor, Excellere Construction, will begin notifying residents and installing erosion control. In addition to sidewalks, the project will include milling on Hillcrest Road to bring the street in line with new curbing. This project will create a safer, more walkable road and is 100-percent funded by the Community Development Block Grant.

Kids at Lilburn City Park playground

New playground, parking planned

This summer, Lilburn residents will get a new playground in Lilburn City Park and more parking to serve downtown.  A new parking lot will be constructed at the site of the existing tennis courts, which will close May 1. New playground equipment, including a separate toddler area, will be installed at the current playground location close to the new parking. Playground closure will be announced when a construction schedule is finalized. All construction will be funded by the 2017-2023 SPLOST, the one-cent sales tax approved by voters.
