Upgrades Coming to Highway 124 Include Cameras, Traffic Flow Improvements
Ten cameras will be installed and the traffic signals will be interconnected.
According to the Gwinnett County Department of Transportation, a project is underway along Highway 124/Centerville Highway to install 6.8 miles of underground fiber optic cable, 10 CCTV cameras, and to interconnect the 11 traffic signals along the corridor.

"This will tie the Centerville Highway corridor to our Traffic Control Center (TCC) and allow staff to monitor and make real time traffic signal adjustments based on current conditions," said Charles Bailey, traffic engineering and planning division director of Gwinnet DOT.
The improvements are being made from Lee Road on Highway 124 through Oak Road. Cameras will be installed in the following intersections:
- Norris Lake Road
- Between Teuda Trail and Castlegate Drive
- Huddersfield Drive
- Annistown Road/Centerville Rosebud
- Bethany Church Road
- Village Glen Lane
- Springdale Road/Everson Road
- Highpoint Road
- Between Ashworth Lake Road and Henry Clower
- US 78
Many of the intersections involved were discussed by Patch readers as being some of the worst intersections in Snellville.
The project is tentatively scheduled for completion in June 2013 and is funded by the 2009 Special Purpose Local Option Sales Tax (SPLOST).
