Emory Village roundabout groundbreaking

A public groundbreaking ceremony for the Emory Village roundabout and streetscape construction project will be Wednesday, Oct. 6 at 11 a.m., at the Emory entrance on North Decatur and Oxford roads.

DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis, county commissioners Kathy Gannon and Jeff Rader and other commissioners with representatives from the Alliance to Improve Emory Village will turn symbolic shovels of dirt at the future roundabout site near the Emory entrance. Ellis and Betty Willis, Emory’s senior associate vice president for government affairs, will be among those making remarks.

The $2.1 million project began in late August and is expected to be completed in June.

The construction is the third phase of the project, following the replacement of outdated water lines and the burying of power lines and other utilities in the area. When completed, project will include new sidewalks, bike lanes, benches and over 50 new trees in the Village.
