Brookhaven, GA Dec. 17, 2013 – We caught up with Brookhaven’s District 2 City Councilman, Jim Eyre and Carl Carver of Brookhaven Public Works Tuesday who told The Post that as soon as this weekend (weather permitting), citizens in and around the area will be able to enjoy 1,100 feet of new sidewalks on Briarwood Way.
The City also distributed a Press Release that provides some additional information:
Brookhaven began pouring cement for new sidewalks today on the city’s one-year anniversary.
Crews are starting in District 2 on Briarwood Way, but sidewalks will be added in each of the city’s four districts. The new sidewalk will extend 1,000 feet from entrance of Briarwood Park to Drew Valley Road, improving safe pedestrian access to Briarwood Park.
In October, the mayor and council identified several locations for the construction of new sidewalks in each district.
“We are excited to improve pedestrian access and safety throughout the city, particularly on this one-year anniversary of Brookhaven becoming a city,” District 2 Councilman Jim Eyre said.
Work on the Briarwood Way sidewalk is expected to last until Thursday, weather permitting. Motorists should expect a partial lane closure on this road to facilitate construction.
