Project Status-Winter 2020: Final design is underway
The project is intended to improve the operational efficiency and enhance safety at the intersection of Spalding Drive and Pitts Road.
Spalding Drive and Pitts Road is one of the few intersections crossing over GA 400, between Dunwoody and Sandy Springs, and is a route taken by both neighborhood residents as well as commuters to/from the Perimeter region. The current intersection utilizes a traffic signal, but the intersection has no dedicated left turns and as a result, experiences significant traffic backup during the AM and PM rush hours.
The concept design, presented during an Open House meeting on Jan. 25, 2018, adds an eastbound right-turn lane along Pitts Road and a northbound left-turn lane along Spalding Drive to improve traffic flow.
The City is also evaluating other nearby intersections for future projects to further improve travel along this route.
Next Steps: Comments from the Jan 25 Open House will be reviewed as the concept is finalized. A recommended concept will be presented to the City Council for review Spring 2018.
