As if traffic isn't already bad enough along 316. I seriously hope GDOT plans to make all of 316 a freeway soon, because before long 316 will nothing but a line of wall to wall development from Lawrenceville to Athens...
Gwinnett County officials gave the go-ahead for a nearly 160-acre project on Georgia 316 that looks as much like a college campus as an office park.
Canadian real estate company The Walton Group of Cos. brought the proposal before the Gwinnett County Planning Commission last night, almost three years after it began scooping up land along 316. The highway connects Atlanta to its far northeastern suburbs and the University of Georgia. Walton likes the site because of its location between Georgia Tech and UGA.
The planned project is already catching the attention of state economic development officials, said Mitch Peevy, a consultant representing The Walton Group during the presentation before planning commissioners.
“The state is excited about having a site like this halfway between Athens and Atlanta,” he said.
