Dunwoody pushes forward with sidewalks and bike paths on major roads.

Short excerpt from Dunwoody Reporter Article

As Dunwoody continues to add bike lanes, a debate has started over whether it’s a good idea to encourage biking on some of the city’s busiest roads.

Dunwoody City Council recently approved a contract to build bike lanes on Mount Vernon Road and is hoping to receive grant funding before it adds bike lanes to Chamblee-Dunwoody Road.

The projects are part of the city’s transportation master plan and fall in line with the Complete Streets Policy, which calls for adding sidewalks and bike paths whenever possible during construction.

“When we do a transportation project, and in some cases regular paving projects, we’ll consider accommodating all users of the public right of way,” said Public Works Director Michael Smith.
Smith said bike lanes have been built on other major Dunwoody roads, like North Shallowford Road and Roberts Drive, as well.

Guess what! I have video footage of the egg and ketchup incident on my vehicles from early this morning! And I handle address my own grievances.
