North Fulton CID Advances Northwinds Parkway Road Project
Planned roadway extension will benefit City of Alpharetta, Gwinnett Tech
ALPHARETTA, Ga. (Oct. 29, 2012) – A new roadway next to the planned Gwinnett Technical College site, just off Georgia 400 in North Fulton, is a step closer to reality thanks to funding from the North Fulton Community Improvement District (CID). The CID board recently approved up to $500,000 to engineer an extension of Northwinds Parkway.
When extended, Northwinds Parkway will border the recently announced site of Gwinnett Technical College, while opening up new land for future development, said North Fulton CID Executive Director Brandon Beach. “Extending Northwinds Parkway is good for North Fulton. It’s been a goal for the CID and the City of Alpharetta for several years, and will be a big asset to Gwinnett Tech.”
The Northwinds Parkway extension was envisioned nearly five years ago in the CID’s Blueprint North Fulton master plan, and was included in the North Fulton Comprehensive Transportation Plan completed in 2010. The CID completed conceptual designs earlier this year to connect the north-south roadway to Old Milton Parkway, west of Georgia 400.
