Emory Village Roundabout Hoping to Ease Traffic

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

DeKalb County officials are hoping to ease traffic congestion near Emory Village with a new roundabout. Drivers should expect delays the next nine months during construction.

The county started the road work Wednesday at the entrance of Emory University at North Decatur Road and Oxford Drive. County spokesman Burke Brennan said he expects the project, which involves replacing the existing traffic light with a roundabout, will be completed in June.

The $2.2 million project is designed to improve traffic flow and pedestrian safety, Brennan said. In addition to the road upgrades, the county is adding new sidewalks, lighting, benches, trash cans, bike racks and landscaping.
