A new Wal-Mart neighborhood market will open along Highway 78 near its intersection with Cambridge Drive and McGee Road. Plans call for a smaller store that focuses primarily on grocery and pharmacy needs with some limited general merchandise available.
The Wal-Mart will occupy space that once served as a dealership for recreational vehicles, but had been vacant for some time. The site was generally considered prime for redevelopment and substantial aesthetic upgrades.
Even before Wal-Mart announced its plans, CID leaders designated a roadway near the development for a much-needed transportation upgrade. This effort brought together the Georgia Department of Transportation, Gwinnett County, the City of Snellville and the CID to reconstruct and realign the Cambridge Drive-McGee Road intersection.
The improved travel pattern increases safety by eliminating the need for "u-turns” and provides easier entrance and exit from the future shopping center.
Please join the Evermore CID, City of Snellville leaders and the Gwinnett County Department of transportation on February 7, 2012 at 4:00 p.m. to celebrate the grand re-opening of the Cambridge Drive-McGee Road intersection.
