The city of Brookhaven is holding two stakeholder meetings to discuss the future of the Ashford Dunwoody Road corridor and wants public input, according to a city press release.
“As one of the first steps in the Ashford Dunwoody Road Corridor Study, the city of Brookhaven is hosting two open-house style meetings to present project information and solicit input on issues, opportunities, and your vision for how to improve the corridor for all users,” said city spokesperson Ann Marie Quill.

“All citizens and stakeholders are invited to come by at any time during those hours on either date.You may attend either meeting since the agenda will be the same for both,” Quill said.

A new “corridor vision” for improving Ashford-Dunwoody Road in Brookhaven was approved by Brookhaven City Council in October.
A major north-south route through Brookhaven, Ashford-Dunwoody Road is a largely two-lane road often overwhelmed by traffic from the hotels, schools and parks that it serves.
The “corridor vision” includes a traffic study, but also will incorporate the city’s Bicycle, Pedestrian and Trail Plan that is still underway.
Streetscape will be another element and the process will include sub-studies of the road’s three main sections: the Peachtree Road intersection, the Johnson Ferry Road intersection, and the Perimeter area. The plan will identify potential funding sources for improvements and suggestion for phasing any work.
The purpose of the study is to develop a vision for a multimodal corridor that:
- Serves the needs of all users of the corridor
- Is harmonious with existing development and future growth along the corridor
- Minimizes negative impacts to property owners and neighborhoods along the corridor
- Is cost-effective and implementable
- Has broad community support from citizens, stakeholders, and other partners
