TRANSPORTATION ISSUES

SEPT 15, 2020 : GDOT seeks input for Ponce de Leon Corridor safety improvements!  Virtual Meeting Sept 29th 6pm-8pm.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is conducting a planning effort to analyze possible intersection safety improvements on the Ponce de Leon corridor from Moreland Avenue to Clairmont Road.  Possible intersection improvements may include roundabouts, additional left turn lanes in both the eastbound and westbound directions, and more. This is as a result of community feedback and solutions that we received during a May 2019 workshop.

GDOT is holding a series of virtual meetings in September. Each one will be tailored to the participants highlighting the benefits and considerations of each of the proposed improvements. Please mark your calendars for September 29th from  6pm- 8pm  to  attend this virtual meeting and provide your feedback concerning this project.  Please RSVP as soon as possible, to jaquitta.williams@aecom.com.  A video link for the workshop will be shared following RSVP.

An update from DeKalb County engineers on street resurfacing projects:  Briarcliff and Ponce

The resurfacing project on Briarcliff will extend from Briarcliff Place (just north of Ponce) to North Druid Hills, then extend down North Druid Hills to Buford Highway.  was scheduled to be resurfaced later this year but was moved to December 2021 in order to accommodate DeKalb County's water line replacement schedule.  Our mutual goal is to reduce the likelihood of needing to cut into new pavement)

The resurfacing project on Ponce was advertised for bids in February, and it is anticipated that it will be awarded within the next month.  Construction is expected to begin this summer (2020) and be complete by January 2021.

Both projects will consist of milling down the existing surface the same
depth as the new asphalt that will replace it.
