Suwanee Police Substation Work Is Progressing
Opening is believed possible in July, official says.
Work is moving along smoothly on the new Suwanee Police substation at I-85, and a July completion is now thought possible.
Mike Maddox of MorelandAltobelliAssociates, the project manager, told city officials recently that the two-story facility is going up well. Though the main police headquarters and dispatch operations will remain at the Buford Highway facility, the new structure will house a state of the art firing range that also can be leased out to other agencies.
It is not known exactly when police will begin to occupy the structure.
Groundbreaking was held in January on the facility, which has a total project cost of $1.9 million. Police say the substation will give them greater visibility in the Gateway area, which is a high priority for redevelopment with City Hall officials. It is located at I-85 and Lawrenceville-Suwanee Road.
Tunnell Spangler Walsh of Norcross is the architect, with Hogan Construction in charge of erecting the facility.
