I had a really good time learning about how the Gwinnett Department Of Transportation work. From the outside looking in you don't see all of the moving parts that go into running our transportation system. Did you know that most of the street signs that you see throughout Gwinnett are made in house by two talented gentlemen? I got a chance to see how they make the street signs in action. How the signs are printed and then applied to the reflective metal that we see on the highways as we travel around the county. I've included a short video to give you a glimpse at how it all goes done at the D.O.T.
The next thing that was pretty fascinating was seeing how the traffic is monitored from the DOT traffic station. There are cameras that can see very well the cars that are driving down the streets, so if you are thinking about running a red light or a stop sign, you'd better think again, because you are on candid camera.
Until Next Time
Make It A Great Day!
I got the chance to have dinner with 10 of my fellow residents from different parts of Gwinnett County. At the dinner we all got a chance to have an intimate conversation with Chairman, Gwinnett County Board Of Commissioner Charlotte J. Nash and District 1 Commissioner Jace Brooks. Nicole Love Hendrickson who is the Community Outreach Program Director organizes this event which is held a few times each year. This was a chance for me and my fellow residents to ask some burning questions of our community leaders and also have a dialog with each other.
Dinner and Dialogue is a Community Outreach initiative that gives residents an opportunity to meet with county commissioners in an informal setting and engage in meaningful dialogue about their county.Dinner and Dialogue will be held on quarterly weeknights at various locations around Gwinnett County from 6:00pm to 8:00pm.
