Ashford Dunwoody Commuter Trail
Ashford Dunwoody Road
This project proposes to develop separated pedestrian and bicycle facilities along Ashford Dunwoody Road between Hammond Drive and Mount Vernon Road.
The commuter pathways being implemented by this project will help connect the office communities with the commercial businesses and residents along the Ashford Dunwoody Road corridor to the Dunwoody MARTA station. This pathway will greatly increase access to jobs, enabling MARTA and other public transportation systems to be more effective and have a broader geographic and socio-economic reach. These commuter pathways are among the most effective ways of meeting the “the last mile” connectivity challenge in this critical geographic area of Georgia’s transportation system which employs over 125,000 people.
The business community is providing financial support for this project through the Perimeter Community Improvement District (PCID) and the City of Dunwoody is contributing funding through the hotel/motel tax fund for tourism development. The project is planned in two phases. Phase 1 is adjacent to Perimeter Mall as shown in the PIOH Materials link in the side bar. The final design of this section is being completed in 2019 with construction anticipated to begin in 2020.
Phase 2 continues from the north end of the mall property to Mount Vernon Road. The conceptual design for this section is currently being developed and is expected to be presented at a public meeting later this year.
On Thursday, June 1, 2017 the Georgia Department of Transportation held a Public Information Open House (PIOH) concerning Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs) Trails Network Commuter Trails.
