LAWRENCE, Ga. (AP) - A citizen group that advises Gwinnett County on how to spend key transportation funds says major road construction and road resurfacing are two of the top priorities.

AJC.com reports (https://on-ajc.com/2e6Gb5B) the Citizen Project Selection Committee makes recommendations on how Gwinnett should spend proceeds from a special sales tax for construction projects that voters will consider Nov. 8. If approved, the special local option sales tax is expected to generate $950 million over six years, including at least $406.9 million for transportation projects.

The top priority - major roads - includes new roads, road widening and significant interchange improvements.

The county Board of Commissioners will have the final say on how the money is spent.
