Gwinnett (GA) to Build Two New Fire Stations

Gwinnett Commissioners approved a contract to build Fire Station 31 and relocate Fire Station 10. According to Gwinnett Fire Chief Casey Snyder, the stations will enhance emergency response capabilities in this fast-growing community.

Fire Station 31 will be located at 1061 Collins Hill Road in Lawrenceville, across from Georgia Gwinnett College and will provide quick access to the Highway 316 corridor.

Fire Station 10 is being relocated to 1131 Rock Springs Road in Lawrenceville, a more central site within its response territory. It replaces a much older and smaller station currently located at the corner of Russell Road and Buford Drive.

SPLOST funds will pay the combined cost of $6,864,000 to build both 14,3000 square feet stations.
