The City of Brookhaven has been working around the clock to ensure the safety of residents and motorists. Some icy areas have already been salted, but generally, road conditions are still very dangerous. Brookhaven Mayor J. Max Davis is asking that all citizens stay off the roads unless it is an emergency.
Brookhaven Public Works crews will continue to salt roads today, with major thoroughfares like Ashford Dunwoody Rd., Dresden Dr., Buford Hwy and Peachtree Rd. to be given priority. The city is working with the Georgia Department of Transportation to obtain more salt mix and treat the state-designated roadways (Buford Hwy and Peachtree Rd.), as they are spread thin with their crews and materials.
Brookhaven City Hall and Municipal Court remain closed today with the exception of an emergency crew command post for the public works department at city hall.
The Brookhaven Police Department has been working nonstop with the public works team to identify top priority roads for treatment. In the past 24 hours, officers have helped about 600 stranded motorists, assisted in moving abandoned vehicles aside to allow room for salt trucks and officially closed North Cliff Valley Rd.
Again, Mayor Davis is asking all citizens to stay safe and stay off the roads as we work to clear the roadways in our city.
