Perimeter Community Improvement Districts awarded $1 million
Gov. Nathan Deal announced June 21 that a $1 million Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank (GTIB) grant has been awarded to the Perimeter Community Improvement Districts (PCIDs) for Lake Hearn Drive and Peachtree Dunwoody Road streetscape and intersection improvements.
The PCIDs’ grant was one of 12 awarded to metro Atlanta CIDs for transportation infrastructure projects totaling more than $8 million.
“We were pleased to be a top level grant recipient in the GTIB grant program for CIDs,” said Yvonne Williams, president and CEO of the PCIDs. “This grant will be used for preliminary engineering, design and right-of-way acquisition to make roadway, pedestrian and bicycle improvements that will complete the full system of transportation improvements from Ashford Dunwoody Road and I-285 to the Hammond half-diamond interchange at Georgia 400.”
“The project also will make transit more accessible and encourage increased use of the nearby Medical Center and Dunwoody MARTA Stations,” said UPS Vice President Chuck Altimari, chair of the Fulton Perimeter CIDs where the project is located.
This was the second GTIB grant awarded to the PCIDs. The organization received $800,000 in 2010 to help with design and engineering for Georgia’s first diverging diamond interchange at I-285 and Ashford Dunwoody Road.
