Could Dunwoody become the City of Roundabouts? One resident thinks so and he wants your thoughts on the subject.
Dunwoody resident, Mr. Joe Seconder floated an idea past me about installing roundabouts at some of the more congested intersections as well as closing down a part of Jett Ferry to create a public park. Since we as a city are about to start our Master Transportation Planning process, now is an ideal time to discuss his and other "out of the box" ideas to improve traffic flow. Take a look at his vision and please feel free to comment, both positive or negative as he would like to read your honest opinions of his ideas. I will reserve judgment except to say that if Jett Ferry was closed where shown, I bet the residents on Saffron Drive south of Mt. Vernon would be very unhappy with the new traffic volume.
What transportation improvements can you envision? Go ahead and let us know.
