Pleasant Hill Road at Satellite Boulevard Study
As part of Gwinnett County’s Demand Services Contract, Wolverton was responsible for the preparation of a concept alternative showing elevated lefts with a traffic signal for the Pleasant Hill Road at Satellite Boulevard intersection. Because of the high commercial land uses in the area, the biggest project challenge was minimizing right-of-way impacts. This alternative limited the impact to adjacent business both from a right-of-way as well as access standpoint. After careful consideration of all alternatives and options, this study looked at more unique opportunities to fix the traffic at this heavily congested and very busy intersection. The Wolverton team looked at elevated left turns that would raise the left turns lanes above the existing intersection, providing grade-separated left turns that merge into the cross-street downstream of the main intersection. Additional options such as an enlarged roundabout were also studied previously.
