Looking for improved Lane Markings within the City of Dunwoody
I placed a call into Public Works on this and they will review the issue on Perimeter Center East.
Though the video above is not related to new paving, the high quality - reflective thremoplastic striping that is suppose to be laid down after the city paving project is complete is taking too much longer than I or many residents anticipated. As several residents are well aware, I have already had numerous conversations with Dunwoody Public Works Director, Mr. Michael Smith about the subject and he assures me that the striping sub-contractor to the paving company will be doing a quality job in the very near future. Adding to the confusion, what you already see in some places is the temporary faded striping that goes down prior to the good stuff.
This restriping will include the replacement of all crosswalks previously in place.
Question: would you see value in using these reflective lane and side line markers on our dark two lane roads? I know on rainy nights I value having them available but I am unsure of the initial cost and on going maintenance expenses. Might be worth looking into getting a price quote?
