Public Information Open House
Tuesday, August 16th, 2016
6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
All Saints Catholic Church
2443 Mount Vernon Road
In reviewing my various news feeds, I noted a conversation happening on NextDoor regarding the numerous accidents happening on Mt. Vernon at Tilly Mill and in a related item the City just announced a public meeting to discuss proposed improvements to that same intersection whereby I believe the actions proposed by the city will mirror the items below that are quoted the the Comprehensive Transportation Plan.
- Intersection Mount Vernon Road at Tilly Mill Road: Change existing left/through to left only and existing right only to shared through/right
- Mount Vernon Road at Mount Vernon Place: Prohibit left turn movements from Mount Vernon Place to Mount Vernon Road westbound. In conjunction with improvement at Mount Vernon Road and Tilly Mill Road.
- Tilly Mill Road at Mount Vernon Place: Realign Mount Vernon Place to form a T intersection with Tilly Mill Road
The City of Dunwoody will be hosting a Public Information Open House (PIOH) to collect community input and feedback on concepts for improvements to the Mount Vernon Road at Tilly Mill Road intersection. This intersection has been identified in the City of Dunwoody’s Comprehensive Transportation Plan as a high priority project due to its current poor safety and low level of service. This intersection and the surrounding corridors lack adequate turn lanes along Mount Vernon and have limited accommodation for non-motorized users. The goal of this project is to correct these deficiencies and improve the safety and operations of this intersection. The scheduled PIOH will look at the concepts currently considered.
This open house event will promote participant interaction with city staff and their representatives. Attendees will have the opportunity to view the current concepts and provide feedback. The dialogue between the City and the public is critical to determine the best solution for this and other projects, so please plan to attend.
The open house will be held from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, August 16th, 2016 at All Saints Catholic Church (2443 Mount Vernon Road in Dunwoody).
