Gwinnett CIDs Win Out in Battle for Transportation Grants

On June 21, the Gwinnett Place, Gwinnett Village, Lilburn and Evermore community improvement districts all received grants for transportation infrastructure improvements totaling 3 million dollars.

The funds were awarded from the Georgia State Road and Tollway Authority’s (SRTA) 2012 Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank (GTIB) grants. Final award approval rests with the board of the SRTA, who is chaired by Governor Nathan Deal. Of the GTBI, Governor Deal highlighted, “The GTIB program is a way for communities who are serious about investing in their infrastructure to apply for the help they need to complete or move their projects forward,” further stating, “These projects are the kind of investments that not only sustain communities, but they also strengthen communities by providing more job opportunities.” Both the Gwinnett Place and Gwinnett Village CIDs received 1 million dollar grants, following closely; the Lilburn CID received an 800,000-dollar grant along with the Evermore CID receiving 200,000 dollars. All grants are being allotted for transportation infrastructure improvements over the next 2 years and include new divergent diamond interchanges and interchange realignment projects.
