Dunwoody City Council approved April 11 spending $128,537 for the design of the Winters Chapel multiuse trail between Peeler Road and Dunwoody Club Road.

Sprinkle Consultants was awarded the project that will include the design of sidewalks on Dunwoody Club Road to complete the gap between Happy Hollow Road and Winters Chapel Road. The design will also include restriping lanes for several areas along this section of Winters Chapel Road, said Mindy Sanders, capital projects manager, said in a memo to the council.

The funding total for the design comes in over the budgeted $100,000, but Sanders said in the memo the cost was “reasonable for the proposed scope and comparable to other sidewalk/bike lane design costs.”

The action to fund the design comes a year after Dunwoody and Peachtree Corners approved the “Peachtree Corners-Dunwoody Winters Chapel Road Area Study” to outline pedestrian and streetscaping improvements along the corridor after input from the public.
