Students at will have a new path to walk on come the new school year. The Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners approved a new sidewalk, curb and gutter and drainage improvements. This work will go for a third of a mile on the north side of New Hope Road from the high school to Tribble Walk Drive.
Construction is expected to be completed by August.
ISC, Inc., the lowest of 10 bidders, was awarded the $769,361 construction contract for the entire project, part of which included the Archer sidewalks. According to Communications Director Joe Sorrenson, there are other projects that will get the bulk of these funds, all of which are from the 2009 SPLOST program.
