Dunwoody city officials are celebrating the city’s construction of five miles of sidewalks.

On Nov. 8, city officials and residents cut a ribbon to mark completion of its fifth mile of sidewalk. By the end of the year’s construction, the city is expected to have spent $1 million on sidewalks and laid down 5.4 miles of sidewalks since 2009, the city said in a press release.
