Release Date: 1/12/2012

SANDY SPRINGS (Jan. 12, 2011) — The City Sandy Springs is adding sidewalks on Spalding Drive, Roswell Road and Glenridge Drive.

Sidewalk is being added on Spalding from Pitts Road to the Dunwoody City Limits. The sidewalk will connect with a sidewalk project recently completed by the City of Dunwoody at Weldstone Court.

On Glenridge Drive, the City is adding sidewalk on the north side of Glenlake Parkway to connect with existing sidewalk on the west side adjoining the driveway at the UPS offices. The City is adding sidewalk on the south side of Northridge Road from Roswell Road to the Georgia 400 west side entrance / exit ramps and will tie into existing sidewalks in the area. These projects were funded by MARTA. Construction work is expected to take approximately three months to complete, weather permitting.

As part of the Community Development Block Grant-Funded Sidewalk Project, sidewalks and pedestrian scale lighting will be added along Roswell Road from Dalrymple to Northridge Road. The Community Development Block Grant Program is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), providing communities with resources to address a range of community development needs. Phase One construction is expected to take approximately six months to complete.
