The City of Dunwoody Begins Filling In Sidewalk Gaps on Peachtree Industrial Boulevard

Construction begins this week on sidewalks on the southbound access road between Winters Chapel Road and the boundary with Doraville.

Dunwoody, GA – February 27, 2019 – The City of Dunwoody will fill in gaps and improve the accessibility of sidewalks on the southbound access road along Peachtree Industrial Boulevard from Winters Chapel Road to Homeland Drive, where Dunwoody meets Doraville.

Work will begin this week and will impact traffic at the intersection of Winters Chapel Road and Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. As the project moves along, the far right lane of the southbound access road will be closed to give construction crews room to work.

This project will eliminate more than 900 feet of existing sidewalk gaps and provide new ADA accessible curb ramps and crosswalks. The need was identified in the City of Dunwoody’s Sidewalk Priority List. This section of sidewalk scored high based on the demonstrated demand, access to transit and adjacent multifamily land use.

“Our goal is to make this area safer and more accessible for everyone in the area,” said Dunwoody Public Works Director Michael Smith. “This project will improve connectivity for residents who need to access to employers, educators and local retail centers.”

The cost estimate for the project by Georgia Development Partners is $94,387. Through a Multimodal Safety and Access Grant, the Georgia Department of Transportation has committed to paying $60,065, which represents 70 percent of the total cost. The City of Dunwoody will pay the remainder of the cost.
