Project Background: During its October 2, 2018 meeting, the Sandy Springs City Council approved an Intergovernmental Agreement with Gwinnett County for road improvements at Spalding Drive connecting Sandy Springs and Gwinnett County. The project will widen Spalding Drive from Winters Chapel to River Exchange and includes replacing the existing bridge.
The Spalding Drive Widening Project is part of Gwinnett County’s 2017 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST) program. The project will widen Spalding Drive from a two-lane road to a four-lane road from Winters Chapel Road to Holcomb Bridge Road.
The project will be coordinated by Gwinnett County, the city of Peachtree Corners and the city of Sandy Springs. The total estimated project cost is $10.5 million, with the City’s contribution an estimated $1.2 million.
Project Description: The City included adding multi-use paths along Spalding Drive as part of the T-SPLOST project. As part of the agreement with Gwinnett County, improvements will include a multi-use path along the south side of Spalding Drive, from Winters Chapel Road to River Exchange Drive, and a sidewalk on the north side of Spalding Drive from Winters Chapel Road to River Exchange Drive. The sidewalks will connect to the existing sidewalks on Holcomb Bridge Road and will provide enhanced connectivity to Crooked Creek Park and the surrounding neighborhoods.
