Study Extended on Connecting Ronald Reagan Parkway to I-85

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA -- It's going to take a little longer to learn the findings of a study on extending Ronald Reagan Parkway to Interstate 85 in Gwinnett County.

County Commissioners agreed to give Skanska USA Civil Southeast, Inc. more time to work on the study and continue discussions with the county, the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration on how and where to build potential new access points to I-85. The contract extension comes at no cost to the county.

"This project is still in a pre-development phase to determine if it is necessary and feasible," Gwinnett DOT Director Brian Allen said in a statement. "Possible routes and environmental impacts will be studied in the next phase."

A local citizens group has met with project leaders 11 times to review various aspects of the proposal and will continue to be involved along the way.

Two Georgia Teams Crack USA TODAY Super 25 Poll

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA -- By beating Bob Jones (AL) on August 28, North Gwinnett became the first Georgia team to crack the USA TODAY Super 25; the Bulldogs debuted last week at 17th in the nation. One week later and Georgia teams are getting even more respect.

North Gwinnett took care of nationally-ranked team Crenshaw (CA) , beating the Los Angeles team 17-12.  That win takes the Bulldogs to 3-0 and 15th in the Super 25. Crenshaw is now 0-1.

Camden County had a big 45-42 win over Miami Central (FL), which was ranked second in the country. Senior kicker Matt Ehasz hit a game-winning 19-yard field goal as time expired to lift the Wildcats from unranked to the 7th spot in the nation. Miami Central dropped to 24th in the same poll.

Massey Matchups Predicts Georgia's Top Games

LAWRENCEVILLE, GA -- With 57.8 percent of the fan vote, Archer at Mountain View was selected as Atlanta.HighSchoolSports.net's Game of the Week. Both teams are in their first full season of varsity play. Both teams are looking for their first win in 2010. Luckily, Massey Matchups tells us which team will get that first victory.

This Friday, expect Mountain View to beat the visiting Archer Tigers 35-27. At least that is what Massey Matchups is predicting.
