The final section the Sugarloaf Parkway extension opened to traffic on December 11. This section of the project extends Sugarloaf Parkway over SR 316 in Dacula and includes the bridge overpass and entrance and exit ramps. The project enhances east-west connectivity across Gwinnett and completes the 6-mile extension from SR 20 south of Lawrenceville to SR 316 in the Dacula area.
The 2009 SPLOST sales tax program primarily funded the $15 million project to construct the ramps and section of Sugarloaf Parkway from Campbell Road to the south side of SR 316 that opened this summer. The Georgia Department of Transportation provided $2.5 million for the construction of this section of the project. County and state officials held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the project, which can be viewed below.
