Diverging Diamond, Barbara Dodd

The diverging diamond interchange at Ashford Dunwoody and I-285 is now open for business.  The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Georgia is spending $5.5 million to fix the traffic backups that are common in the area. The design will route traffic from right lanes to left lanes so motorists can avoid waiting for an arrow allowing a left-hand turn.

Department of Transportation officials have plans to try similar designs at the Interstate 85 interchanges at Jimmy Carter Boulevard and Pleasant Hill Road.

 The passing of Barbara Dodd

Dunwoody lost one of its most involved, classiest ladies this weekend when Barbara Dodd unexpectedly passed away at the age of 74. 
I didn't know Barbara as well as many, but I did know her well enough to keenly understand just how much she cared about people and about her community.  And she had a great sense of humor (but I wouldn't expect anything less from a fellow Texan)!
