    Can you please install a Share the road sign to help wiht the safety of persons on bicycles at this location in the eastbound direction? It is a VERY DANGEROUS segment of Mt. Vernon. There is no paved shoulder, it is on a slight hill with high traffic volume. There is a Share the Road sign in the westbound direction near Oxford Chase Way that was installed several years ago. However, in the eastbound direction for a mile in either way, there are no share the road signs. If you can also pain SHARROWS along this segment (from Meadowlake Drive to Jett Ferry), that would also greatly add to safety. I understand that Mt. Vernon is on the Comprehensive Transportation Plan as identified for bicycle facilities. When the road will be repaved, I hope it will mirror the Complete Street project presently ongoing on Chamblee Dunwoody south of Womack. But that could be a few years away. I sincerely appreciate this low-cost and quick fix to help increase safety of persons traveling on bicycles.

    Wrong way drain grates. Per GA Code, drain grates cannot be parallel to the direction of travel. Persons on bicycle can easily ride into them. The tires will become stuck, and can cause an accident resulting in serious injury or death.

    5/20/16 update: The ticket has been archived by Sandy Springs and apparently I cannot reopen it. Has this been fixed? If yes, can you please upload and post photos?

    On Perimeter Center East Extension, at intersection with Perimeter Center East, directly across from driveway / curbcut to Dunwoody City Hall parking lot. Change street markings to allow to drive straight through intersection. Presently can only make a left or right-hand turn as marked. A vehicle can get ticketed if they wish to drive straight across to city hall.

  • 4597 North Shallowford Rd Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody

    This is where the Dunwoody Trailway will cross, connecting Brook Run to Chamblee-Dunwoody. The trail is expected to be open and completed within the next 60 days. PRIOR to it's opening, we must create a safer way for people to cross. How will persons traveling on the trail cross the intersection? As a default, will they have to cross twice? From west to east for example, they would: 1) Push the ped crossing signal; 2) Cross North Shallowford; 3) Stop & push the signal to cross Lake Ridge Lane. 4) When activated, cross onto the trail.

    There are many inherent dangers with this “default” / “as is” design once the trail is open. As more & more casual persons use this facility, the greater the risk of these persons being in a crash with a car making right or left hand-turns. Or going through a red.

    Starting with the adage, “I am not an engineer”, I would like to suggest consideration of the following:

    1. Exclusive Pedestrian Phase
    Provides a separate phase of the traffic signal where all vehicle lights turn to red and the “white walking man” comes on allowing pedestrians to cross the street without vehicle traffic movement.
    2. Pedestrian Scramble
    Scramble: “X” Crossing markings indicating pedestrians may walk diagonally across the intersection during exclusive pedestrian crossing phase
    3. No Turn on Red
    Too many motorists roll through red lights when making right-hand turns.

    4. Shorter cycle length

    5. Automatic sensors built into the trail approach to trip the signal to pedestrian crossing

    6. Additional lighting

    7. Traffic calming on North Shallowford
    a. If no Pedestrian Scramble, then Pedestrian Crossing island built of concrete on the north side of the intersection.
    b. Curb bulb outs
    c. Raised intersection
    8. Additional Signage such as State Law / Stop for Pedestrians

    The two street lights at the 4-way stop that were installed a couple of years ago are burnt out. The one that is directed towards Dunwoody Club Drive toggles off & on intermittently. The one towards Jett Ferry is completely burnt out.

  • 2495 Jett Ferry Road Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody

    I just witnessed a car with Florida license plates completely BLOW THROUGH the 4-way stop sign at Jett Ferry & Dunwoody Club Drive. He was on Dunwoody Club Drive headed west. I had just approached the intersection on Jett Ferry headed north. Had I gotten there 10-20 seconds earlier, it is quite possible the car would have hit me on the passenger side; with my wife sitting there.

    Are there any plans on improving the safety of this intersection? (We don’t need a traffic light. That will simply cause more traffic to be backed up during non-rush hour times.)

    We regularly have collisions at this intersection. My wife & I regularly walk across this intersection going to the shops. Even with the crosswalk painted white lines, it still does not feel safe & inviting for a person to be there & walk across the intersection on foot.

    Here are some suggestions:

    • Very quickly & cheaply, paint on the pavement well-in-advance of the intersection in all directions: “Stop Ahead”
    • Add “Stop Ahead” signs
    • Get a flashing red light installed – Just like there is at Dunwoody Club Drive & Ball Mill
    • Install a splitter island installed on Dunwoody Club drive on the east side of the intersection where there are pedestrians which cross
    • Rumble strips ahead of the intersection
    • Raised Pedestrian Crossings
    • Slowing the speed limit down from 35 to 25 mph:
    a) On Jet Ferry from Mt. Vernon to Dunwoody Club Drive. This is a pedestrian-intense segment with an unsafe number of curbcuts that would have never been approved today (ask Sandy Springs to continue it to several hundred feet prior to the intersection)
    b) On Dunwoody Club Drive starting from Mt Vernon (to the east) to several hundred feet west of the intersection
    • Install mid-block pedestrian crossing islands (act as traffic calming. “Inform” motor vehicle drivers there are persons on foot in this area.)
    a) Jett Ferry halfway between Mt. Vernon & Dunwoody Club
    b) Dunwoody Club halfway between Jett Ferry & Mt. Vernon
