Brookhaven to get new sidewalks and paved roads

Posted: Updated:

The city of Brookhaven announced Tuesday that new sidewalks and paved roads are coming to the north DeKalb county community.

According to a release from the city, new sidewalks will be built along:

  • Curtis Drive – in front of Woodward Elementary
  • Briarwood Way – from Briarwood Park entrance to Drew Valley Drive
  • Coosawattee Drive - at Cartecay Drive
  • Appalachee Drive – between Etowah and Canoochee Drives
  • Windsor Parkway – between Osborne Road and the city border
  • Humility Lane – between Hearst Drive and Ashford Dunwoody Road
  • Ashford Dunwoody Road – between Humility Lane and Stratfield Drive
  • Harts Mill Road – at Watkins Place

The city said it approved an amended 2013 budget of $400,000 to build the new sidewalks and that construction should begin after Thanksgiving through early next year.

"We are excited to have the opportunity to improve pedestrian access and work to make Brookhaven more walkable," Mayor J. Max Davis said. "We were able to add these improvements to our neighborhoods without adding any additional funding to the budget."

Five streets will also be paved by the end of November, according to the release.  The paving will take place on:

  • Dunwoody Place
  • Etowah Drive – between Ellijay and Appalachee Drives
  • Hunters Brook Court
  • Pamela Drive
  • Stratfield Drive – between Ashford Dunwoody Road and Stratfield Circle
