Dunwoody Comprehensive Transportation Plan Update

The City of Dunwoody is currently updating its Comprehensive Transportation Plan which outlines the community’s transportation objectives and funding priorities.  This plan was originally developed in 2009.  Since this time, efforts on several of the prioritized projects have begun and some have been completed. The primary purpose of the five year update is to review and refresh the recommended project list and work program as well as explore enhancements to plan components such as pedestrian and bicycling facilities.

A public meeting to discuss this update and the potential new projects, was held on March 7, 2016.  The following materials were presented.

An update to the plan has been drafted (Draft CTP Update) Huge File 99MB.  This item will be discussed at an upcoming City Council meeting.  

Comments may be submitted via email to or mailed to City of Dunwoody Public Works Department, 41 Perimeter Center East, Suite 250 Dunwoody, GA 30346.

John -- I've been trying to make it though that document but it is very confusing. Also, it appears from the visual you've included here re: pedestrian and bicycle plan that we are falling short of the goal of a simple, connected, safe-for-all network for a family-friendly community.

The map makes it look like there will be a bike path at end of Old Springhouse, going through the woods and connecting to some street/office park off of Ashford Dunwoody. Do you know if this is going to happen? Would be nice to have.

Jay the City bought park land along the creek at the end of Old Spring House and will be building a pedestrian/bike bridge going over the creek tying the Georgetown community to the Perimeter area. A trail will run behind the new townhomes being built on Perimeter Center East and the trail will currently end at a small park currently named Perimeter Center East Park. I hope that helps? John

thanks John. I knew I remembered reading it; I pedaled down Old Springhouse a month or so ago and it looks like they haven't started it.
