New Community Effort to Address North Decatur Road Safety Issues

Have thoughts on the North Decatur Road corridor from Clairmont Road to Blackmon Drive? You’re not alone.

This December we’ll take the first step towards our community goal of making the city’s northern edge a safer and more habitable roadway for pedestrians, bicyclists, those with disabilities, motorists, and adjacent property owners.

It’s called Street Smarts: The North Decatur Road Initiative and it kicks off Wednesday, December 7 at the North Decatur Presbyterian Church, 611 Medlock Road, Decatur, from 6-8pm.

The project is being approached in two parts. The first and highest priority is where we control the outcome: A design solution for the intersection of N. Decatur and Superior that will immediately move towards schematics and implementation at the conclusion of this process. But in tandem, we’ll also be imagining and mapping out ideas for a better stretch of roadway overall so city leaders have a solid place to start in working with their peers in DeKalb County towards long-term improvements.

Learn more about the process and how it will play out in this post on Decatur Next, then make plans to join us December 7.
