In the current edition of one of our local papers, The Dunwoody Crier, there's an article referencing a woman that lives in Dunwoody and is relocating her business to Dunwoody as well. The lead quote from her? "I’ll be able to ride my bike to work”.
Her offices will be on the segment of North Shallowford that is having bike lanes installed this year as part of resufacing. No additional widening of the road. No acquiring rights-of-way. Just by simply taking the travel lanes down to 10-feet. It's called "Routine Accommodation" and in the final recommendations to municipalities in the 2007 Atlanta Regional Commission's Bike/Ped Plan.
