Dunwoody commemorates milestone of 5 miles of sidewalks.

The City of Dunwoody commemorates another infrastructure and paving milestone with the completion of the city’s 5th mile of sidewalk paving.  The city hosted a commemoration and ribbon cutting event at the corner of West Fontainebleau Court and Happy Hollow Road in Dunwoody to observe the sidewalk paving landmark.

Work continues on several critical sidewalk projects as part of the city’s sidewalk improvement plan created to provide an objective process to prioritize the city’s sidewalk projects.  The city has identified over 21 miles of future sidewalk improvements and 87 future ADA-compliant sidewalk ramps.

Following the completion of this year’s sidewalk construction, the City will have invested nearly $1,000,000 and completed roughly 5.4 miles of new sidewalk infrastructure since 2009, making Dunwoody a safer, healthier, and more enjoyable community for all.  This has been accomplished in a relatively short timeframe with no tax increases and no need to borrow money.

The city continues its commitment to maintain and improve its roads by investing over $2,000,000 in paving this year which is more than 40 percent of the city’s entire 2013 capital budget.  Since 2009, including this year’s investments, the city has spent more than $6,500,000 paving the city’s estimated 306 total lane miles of roads in Dunwoody.
