Interested in what’s planned for Ashford-Dunwoody Road? Want to learn more about traffic on Peachtree Road at Dresden Drive and North Druid Hills Road? Then make plans to attend Brookhaven Mayor John Ernst’s town hall on May 26 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Ashford Park Community Center, 2980 Redding Road.
Ernst will have Georgia Department of Transportation and regional representatives on hand to discuss the latest traffic studies “and collaborative efforts to help solve some of Brookhaven’s biggest traffic concerns,” according to a press release.
There will also be general discussion on the traffic mitigation process.
After tapping the brakes on MARTA’s planned Peachtree Road development, Brookhaven city leaders met in March with transportation officials to try to create a regional plan for handling traffic.
Ernst asked for a task force after backlash against the proposed MARTA TOD at Brookhaven/Oglethorpe pushed him to ask MARTA to delay its rezoning request from April until June.
MARTA is also conducting a traffic study on how its proposed development would affect the area and GDOT has other studies along to the Peachtree corridor to draw from.
