The Georgia Department of Transportation reopened pedestrian access last week across the Diverging Diamond Interchange (DDI) at I-285 and Ashford Dunwoody Road. Yvonne Williams, president of the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts, stood with Dunwoody Mayor Mike Davis and Councilor Terry Nall in front of the 5-foot high concrete walls that are to protect pedestrians from vehicles on each side. Pedestrian access across the bridge closed at the beginning of June so that contractors could install the protected walkway and add pedestrian islands and countdown signal timers. 

Vehicle traffic on the interchange, the first DDI in Georgia, shifted to the new crossover alignment on June 3, but work continues on sidewalks, curb and gutter and signals. Project completion is expected this fall.
