Dunwoody Village Main Street Project Readies for Lane Shift
Construction crews continue to make progress on the Dunwoody Village Main Street project. The curbing and driveway entrances on the south side of Dunwoody Village Parkway have been completed and crew are finishing up with the sidewalk construction. Final preparations are being made on the roadway for paving work on the south side. After completion of the south side paving, crews will shift to commence work on the north side, moving traffic to the south side of the thoroughfare.

The timing of the traffic signals at either end of the parkway (at both Chamblee Dunwoody Road and at Mount Vernon Road) are running on fixed cycles until the construction is completed. Once work at these intersections is complete, the signals will be re-set to operate via the inductive-loop traffic detector sensors typically installed at signalized intersections.

In spite of frequent rain throughout the winter and two weeks of snow and ice, construction crews continue to make progress on the Dunwoody Village Main Street project.

Most recently, crews shifted traffic to the north side of the parkway to construct new storm water drains along the south side of the thoroughfare.  Once the storm drain and utility work is complete, curbing and driveway entrances will be built followed by paving work on the south side.  After completion of the south side construction work, crews will begin work on the north side of the parkway, shifting traffic to the south side.

The timing of the traffic signals at either end of the parkway (at both Chamblee Dunwoody Road and at Mount Vernon Road) have been adjusted to fixed cycles until the construction is completed.  Once work at these intersections is complete the signals will be re-set to operate via the inductive-loop traffic detector sensors installed at these signalized intersections.

The shops, restaurants, and businesses located in the Village Parkway area will remain accessible throughout construction.

Construction crews continue to make progress on the Dunwoody Village Main Street project and will soon begin concentrating work on the south side of the parkway. Crews have removed the medians, including all of the vegetation and trees, from the parkway median and have placed tree-save protective fencing and erosion control measures along the construction area boundaries adjacent to the parkway.

Construction activities will soon shift traffic to the north side of the parkway while crews address stormwater drains and sub-grade utility work along the south side of the thoroughfare. Once the storm drain and utility work is complete, curbing and driveway entrances will be built followed by paving work on the south side of the parkway. After completion of the south side construction work, crews will begin work on the north side of the parkway, shifting traffic to the south side.
The shops, restaurants, and businesses located in the Village Parkway area will remain accessible throughout construction.
