Dunwoody's infrastructure -- its streets and sidewalks, stormwater pipes and conveyances, traffic signs and signals, and all the behind-the-scenes equipment and structures that form the physical backbone of the city -- are in the care of the Public Works Department.
The Public Works Department is comprised of the Capital Projects, Stormwater, Traffic, and Operations and Maintenance divisions. Employees of each of these divisions efficiently and responsibly care for:
310 lane miles of pavement 69 linear miles of sidewalk
69 miles of stormwater pipes 18,700 stormwater structures
60 traffic signals 4,000 traffic signs
Public Works responds 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to emergencies that occur on city right-of-way such as flooding, icing, traffic signal outages, and obstructions such as downed trees and sink holes.
