Sandy Springs and Dunwoody are on the receiving end of some transportation infrastructure funds. Gov. Nathan Deal announced on May 28 the approval of funding for 20 projects statewide totaling $33 million in grants and loans.
Sandy Springs will receive a $750,000 grant and a $2.75 million loan for a Windsor Parkway realignment at Roswell Road. That project will involve the removal of split-phase signal timing and the addition of turn lanes, sidewals and pedestrian crossings.
Dunwoody will receive a $784,000 grant for intersection improvements at Tilly Mill and North Peachtree that will include new turn lanes, bike lanes and sidewalks to all approaches of the intersection. The project also includes a new traffic light at North Peachtree and Peeler.
The grants and loans are provided through the Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank program, a revolving infrastructure investment fund established in 2008 by Georgia legislators and administered by the State Road and Tollway Authority.
