The city of Sandy Springs will have to allocate more money for a paving project on Dunwoody Place, between Roberts Drive and Northridge Road.

The city is almost $340,000 short on the $1.1 million project because “more extensive pavement reconstruction” is required, said Marty Martin, manager of the construction management/project management division of the city public works department.

On Sept. 7, Sandy Springs City Council authorized spending the money.

Tom Black, director of public works, said the paving budget will even out because he expects to save money on other projects in the city.

In addition to paving, the project includes the construction of additional traffic lanes, intersection improvements, storm drainage structures and sidewalks on Dunwoody Place. Construction should start by the end of the year.
