There’s an even cheaper solution for N. Druid Hills congestion – don’t approve rezonings and “Institutional” uses beyond existing. No sign blight, happier citizens! Win-win!

Lots of folks need to get to this shopping center on way home. Have you thought of how they are going to do that? Go up and loop thru the Public Shopping Center and cause more congestions on Ashford Dunwoody or coming back out on Johnson Ferry at the light causing more backup on JF.

This effectively prevents anyone south of this shopping center from using the shopping center. Seems like an excellent solution. I’m sure the businesses will be quite happy with it.

People south of the shopping center, heading north on Ashford Dunwoody, should turn left at the traffic light at Ashford Dunwoody and Johnson Ferry and then turn RIGHT into the shopping center. This move is good common sense with no downside for the shopping center traffic.

Uh, what’s wrong with routing yourself on Johnson Ferry to Cambridge?

The people in D1 are very special. You need to be careful and respectful of their status.

If Brookhaven was Game of Thrones, District 1 would be ruled by Cersei and District 4 would be that island they send the rock people to die on.

Greyscale is the fictions disease. The city they send the stone men to die is Valyria which in the lore used to be a great city.

Oh no I’m agreeing with Saul! You have a left hand turn signal, Turning left at the signal onto Johnson Ferry and then right into the shopping center is more efficient and considerate. Actually I think it should be no left turn at these spots 24/7

BTW instead of installing the island on Donaldson to stop left turns, perhaps they should have just adjusted the lights and signage to prohibit left hand turns at rush hour only, The City of Atlanta does this at several spots along Peachtree.

That is one better option that could have been done to the Donaldson/Johnson Ferry Rd intersection instead of a concrete barrier. As someone who lives up off of Harts Mill Rd and uses Donaldson Rd to turn left onto Johnson Ferry, as well as turn left onto Ashford Dunwoody Rd from Harts Mill Rd, my options have become more restrictive – especially since I had to wait for two red light cycles at the Harts Mill/Ashford Dunwoody Rd intersection recently. And school has not even begun at Marist. I use MARTA extensively, but getting to Medical Center or Brookhaven Stations… Read more »

Joe, true. As a side note from Harts Mill I would think the Chamblee Station would be a better option if trying to take MARTA.

Make a left at the traffic light in front of the Valero onto Johnson Ferry Rd. You can turn right into the shopping center at 3 different entrances.

And the benefit of this route is you get to see more of Brookhaven’s famous ratty fences!

Fines for illegal left turns should keep the Police Department solvent for decades.

This change will save lives. You can’t safely making a left (north) on AD during rush hour from the shopping center. I cringe every time I see someone attempt this maneuver.

Smart move. Should help traffic without any real inconvenience to shopping center patrons.
