ATLANTA -

Transportation officials unveiled a new road project on State Route 20 in Gwinnett County on Friday.

A groundbreaking ceremony was held to mark the start of the widening of Route 20.

The road will be expanded to four lanes from Loganville to Sugar Hill and across the Chattahoochee River into Forsyth County.

The road is the only connector to I-85, I-985, and Ga. 400.

Sugar Hill's city manager says the extra lanes are needed for the more than 35,000 drivers who take the route every day.

Gwinnett's SPLOST sales tax program provided about $7 million for the project.

Some $85 million in state and federal dollars will also fund the construction.
