Weather permitting, traffic on Buford Highway/Ga. 13 at the Hall-Gwinnett County line is expected to shift to new lanes Thursday, Feb. 20, as part of a widening project.

The road is being widened from two to four lanes from Sawnee Avenue in Gwinnett to Lanier Islands Parkway/Ga. 347 in Hall — a 1½-mile stretch.

The new road will have a 20-foot raised median, 4-foot bike lanes, curb and gutter and a 5-foot sidewalk on both sides, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.

The $22.8 million project is set for completion May 31.
