BROOKHAVEN -- Although Brookhaven is a relatively new city, there's an old problem with vehicle congestion in one of it's most heavily traveled corridors.

The intersection of Ashford Dunwoody Road and Johnson Ferry Road accommodates nearly thirty-thousand vehicles a day. Many of those, it seems, come through during rush hour.

If both roads offered multiple, continuous flow lanes, that probably wouldn't be a big deal. But the roads are narrow and both roads possess turn only lanes, which leads to lengthy backups for drivers trying to go straight.

So I took these issues to the City of Brookhaven and asked what their plans are to improve this junction. They sited traffic signal coordination and including the area as a priority in their Comprehensive Transportation Plan or C.T.P. as potential solutions.
