Gwinnett County’s transportation officials are accepting final public comments and putting finishing touches on a long-range transportation plan the county expects to cost $4.1 billion over the next 22 or so years. The plan, known as Destination 2040, will be forwarded to the county commission for approval after the comment period ends Nov. 26.
County spokesman Joe Sorenson said the first $980 million, for projects in the first six years, will come largely from the 2017 SPLOST along with funding from state and federal sources. Beyond that, the county is counting on voters extending SPLOST collections and other governments picking up a share of the cost. In all, Sorenson said Gwinnett expects to foot the bill for 50-55 percent of the projects.
