Road Work AheadRoad Work: Culvert Repair at Dunwoody Club Drive & Brookeridge Drive

Work crews will conduct road repairs to fix a damaged stormwater culvert at the intersection of Dunwoody Club Drive & Brookeridge Drive.  Crews will begin work Friday June 10 (from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.) and will continue on Saturday June 11 (from 8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m.) and again on Monday June 13 (from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.). All construction repair work is dependent on weather conditions.

During construction traffic will be reduced to one lane along this section of Dunwoody Club Drive, approximately 150 feet of roadway. Flag crews will assist in directing traffic throughout active construction periods in an attempt to minimize traffic impacts and to ensure the safety of the drivers and the construction crews. Night work not occur on this repair due to the number of residences directly adjacent to the project.

For additional information please contact the City of Dunwoody Department of Public Works at 678.382.6850 or email

Nandina LaneModifications to Nandina Lane and Mt. Vernon Road Intersection

The Mt. Vernon Road - Nandina Lane intersection is undergoing modifications to create a “Right-turn-in/Right-turn-out only” configuration. Once completed, drivers will no longer have the option to make left turns off Mt. Vernon onto Nandina.  This change is designed to address safety of drivers as well as pedestrians at this section of road.
Left turns in and out of roads, businesses or developments are generally the most problematic movements for drivers. Increased traffic volume over the past five-plus years, coupled with a condensed left turn lane distance approaching the intersection of Mt. Vernon and Chamblee Dunwoody, have raised safety issues for drivers along Mt. Vernon Rd. (both east and westbound). One way to address safety impacts is to eliminate left turns and restrict access to a “Right-turn-in/Right-turn-out only” configuration.  Turning restrictions are particularly important when the access points are relatively close to existing intersections, as Nandina Lane is to Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
The improvement should also help address safer pedestrian crossings by offering a refuge island at Nandina Lane and reduce points of conflict for crossing pedestrians through the elimination of left turns.
