N Druid Hills Rd nr Briarcliff road widening project

From county spokesman Burke Brennan via Cribbs, Jonathan. “County Addresses North Druid Hills Road Construction.” North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch, 3/13/12: "The project will widen North Druid Hills Road from Briarcliff Road to Woodcliff Drive in order to extend the left-turn lane to Briarcliff Road southbound. North Druid Hills Road will also be widened from Briarcliff Road to the west, toward Interstate 85, in order to provide a third westbound receiving lane for the double left turn lane from Briarcliff Road northbound. Briarcliff Road will also be widened to provide an additional southbound through lane from North Druid Hills Rd to Sheridan Drive. The project is expected to ease traffic congestion and reduce delays for drivers who use this intersection every day. In addition, new ADA compliant sidewalks, upgraded traffic signals, and crosswalks will enhance the safety of pedestrians who pass through the area. Funding for the project comes from revenue from the 2005 bond referendum for infrastructure projects. Construction is estimated to take approximately 15 months at a cost of approximately $2.6 million. The contractor for the project is Desmear Systems, Inc." [read more]
