The cities of Dunwoody and Sandy Springs will jointly present concepts for traffic flow and safety improvements for the Dunwoody Club Drive/Jett Ferry Road intersection at a Feb. 8 meeting.

Alternative design concepts will include a signalized intersection and a roundabout, according to Steve Tiedemann, Sandy Springs’ program manager for projects funded by a recent transportation special local option sales tax.

The intersection is on the cities’ border. Its northwest corner is adjacent to the Dunwoody Country Club and a “butterfly garden.”

The meeting will be an open house format without a formal presentation. It will be held Thursday, Feb. 8, 5:30-7 p.m. at the Dunwoody Community Church, 2250 Dunwoody Club Drive, Sandy Springs. For more information, see

Update: This story has been updated with details of the alternative design concepts.

  1. It seems like just a normal set of traffic signals will greatly improve safety and traffic flow here.

    More difficult task would be trying to improve traffic flow through the Roberts Dr-Spalding Dr intersection.

  2. Just install a traffic light with turn signals.
    You do not need to put in a roundabout that would destroy the neighborhood appearance of the intersection and make the traveling through the intersection more tedious.

  3. I’m so glad this issue is under consideration as someone who lives within walking distance of the intersection I’m in favor of which ever solution (round about or signal} works better for traffic flow and pedestrian access per the traffic consultant. It’s great that this is being looked at!

  4. Glad this is finally being addressed. One can only hope the Jett Ferry/Spalding & Roberts/Spalding intersections are also up for improvement! Time for our tax $ to finally be used where it is coming from and long been overlooked. Sidewalks that are completed would be nice.
