Doraville, GA, March 21, 2017 – by Anna Williams for The Post – On Monday, Doraville City Councilmembers unanimously approved a reduction in the speed limit to 25 mph on three well-traveled City streets, in hopes the reduced speeds will further protect the safety of pedestrians. Two persons were killed in 2016 along Tilly Mill Rd.
Councilman Robert Patrick proposed the speed limit be changed from 35 mph to 25 mph along Tilly Mill Rd., a key connector in the City. During Monday’s Council Meeting, Councilmember Sharon Spangler suggested Oakcliff Rd. and Councilman M.D. Naser suggested Chestnut Dr. be added to the list of streets also needing the speed reduced to 25 mph.
“The speed limit changes shall coincide with the installation of the proposed traffic calming tables and modified hawk system (similar to the system installed at the Dunwoody/Doraville boundary on Tilly Mill Rd),” Councilman Patrick suggested.
The City indicates notification of the speed limit changes will be posted along those routes to warn motorists in advance of the changes.
