This month, GDOT finally unveiled their initial plans for the toll lanes they plan to build along I-285. You can view PDFs showing the part of the new roads that will go through Doraville here. You can also view them at city hall - we have printed large format versions that people can look at in person.
There is an opportunity for GDOT to incorporate some planning for future forms of mobility (bike and pedestrian access; various road improvements) into their ultimate design - but this can't happen unless we have a plan to share with them. Other cities along I-285 have created mobility plans to flesh out these details. Doraville needs to do the same.
The Chamblee-Doraville CID - a special community improvement district made of commercial property owners along Buford Highway and Peachtree Boulevard - is going to do its own mobility study of its footprint, and is allowing the city of Doraville to piggy back on top of what they are doing in our residential areas. This is a good opportunity that I believe the council will consider taking part in at the February meeting.
