“The primary objective of this proposed project is to improve efficiency and safety of the intersection,” said Dunwoody Public Works Director Michael Smith. “Gathering public input is an important step in the process. Instead of holding a meeting in the midst of COVD-19, we are seeking online input based on conceptual drawings and a detailed video.”
The intersection has been on the City’s radar for years. Currently, westbound drivers on Womack Road have only one lane available, whether they’re turning left, right, or going straight through the intersection. As a result, a vehicle waiting to turn left must yield to oncoming traffic, which often causes backups for other drivers.
