Clearing will begin soon for the widening of Ga. 13 from Sawnee Avenue in Gwinnett County to Lanier Islands Parkway/Ga. 347 in Hall County.
The roadway will be updated to a four-lane divided highway with a 20-foot raised median, 4-foot bicycle lane, 5-foot sidewalks and curb and gutter.
Lane closures will be allowed between 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday as the contractor, E.R. Snell, begins clearing trees from the right of way, according to the Georgia Department of Transportation.
