  • 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

  • Perimeter Center Place Dunwoody, Georgia - Dunwoody

    Per understanding from the City of Dunwoody Public Works Department, Perimeter Center Place was scheduled to be striped for Bike Lanes as part of the resurfacing/paving project. The road has been re-paved with the last few days. There are "temporary" / hashed lane markings that show the OLD configuration -- 2 travel lanes each direction. What has been communicated is that this segment would be changed to: a) Center Turn Lane; b) one motor vehicle travel lane in each direction; c) Bike Lanes on both sides.

  • 1248 Mt. Vernon Road Dunwoody Georgia, Dunwoody, GA - Dunwoody

    This segment of Mt. Vernon was designated & approved by City Council to have Bike Lanes. The signs at each end state "Bike Route.". This signage provides no legal protection of the cyclists for the bike lane. For example, driving in it, parking in it, etc. Instead (& especially since there are no painted bike lane markings, either), the Dunwoody Law Enforcement would be unable to ticket a motor vehicle driver in violating these legal protections of a bike lane. See the proper MUTCD Bike Lane Signage on Roberts Drive for the legal examples. This needs to be fixed at the highest priority, for the safety of bicyclists.
