This busy Brookhaven intersection is getting redesigned

The Brookhaven City Council announced Monday it had approved funding for a contract to design improvements to the Ashford Dunwoody/Peachtree Road intersection.

“The improvements will include installing a dedicated right turn lane on southbound Peachtree Road to Ashford Dunwoody Road, and extending a right turn lane on southbound Ashford Dunwoody Road to Peachtree Road,” said Public Works Director Hari Karikaran. “In addition, we will be adding multi-use paths and a 5-foot sidewalk.”

The timeline for the redesign hasn’t been announced.
