Gwinnett County Officials give a County Update

Gwinnett County, GA--  (submitted by Gwinnett County Government)

This has been one of the more significant snow and ice events Gwinnett has experienced in many years in terms of volume of snow and ice on the roads in combination with below-freezing temperatures. Despite the colder temperatures expected over the next few days, the sun, low humidity, and wind are expected to help accelerate the natural evaporation and melting process.

The Gwinnett County Department of Transportation has been responding to weather-related road conditions since the winter storm hit metropolitan Atlanta on Sunday evening. The department has been primarily cooperating with and assisting the County's emergency personnel and crews, which have responded to icy conditions on major thoroughfares and collector streets.

The Roads are Open; We Have Your Traffic Information at 11Alive.com

All the roads in Metro Atlanta are open today. You need to pack a huge load of patience while you get going though. There are many delays out there. For details on particular routes, check http://11alive.com/traffic.


The left lanes have ice in them. Stay out of those left lanes. Assume that all overpasses have ice on them; many have glaze ice that you will not be able to see until you are on them.

ALL of the on and off ramps have ice in them. Approach them slowly and carefully. If you speed onto an offramp or try to turn suddenly, you will slide and crash.


All have some ice on them. Most with three lanes ordinarily are down to two; most with two lanes regularly, are down to one lane.

Local Suwanee Company Awarded Large Contract to Upgrade Marta's Fire Protection System

Atlanta, GA--  M.C. Dean, Inc., a design-build firm, has been selected by MARTA to upgrade MARTA's fire protection system.

Representatives from the company said that MARTA will fund the project using $32 million in grants from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA).  The money will be used to finance the upgrading and enhancing of MARTA's fire alarm, sprinkler and clean agent suppresion systems throughout more than 100 MARTA facilities including all 38 rail stations.

Mark Tibbetts, GM from M.C.Dean's Suwanee office says, "MARTA made a great choice when they selected our company. The M.C. Dean fire protection designers and project management team designated to run this project have extensive experience on similar projects.  Also because we are using local resources operating out of our Suwanee office to engineer, construct, integrate and commission the sytem, the ARRA grant money is going to be spent locally."

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA. – The Georgia Department of Transportation will hold a construction information session on the I-85 Express Lane Project on Sept. 1 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Gwinnett Civic Center. The project to convert 16 miles of HOV lanes to HOT lanes will offer more choices to all motorists, including single occupant vehicles and more reliable trip times in the corridor.

"This is the first project of its kind in Georgia," said DOT Commissioner Vance C. Smith, Jr. "With construction expected to begin in mid-September, it is extremely important that motorists understand how changes along the interstate will impact their commutes."
