The Brookhaven Heights Civic Association (BHCA) requested the city initiate a traffic study to evaluate the issue of cut-through traffic in that neighborhood. The neighborhood previously had speed tables installed by DeKalb County before Brookhaven was incorporated. The neighborhood initiated the required petition process for a neighborhood traffic study, with 66.5 percent of affected homes responding positively. Sixty-five percent is required by city ordinance.
In meetings with BHCA representatives discussing possible solutions and through their discussions in the neighborhood, a plan was prepared which proposed to partially close access from the neighborhood to and from North Druid Hills at Standard Drive, Thornwell Drive, and Oglethorpe Avenue. Additional traffic calming measures desired would be installation of a neighborhood roundabout at the intersection of Oglethorpe Avenue and Colonial Drive and 12 additional speed tables to correct improper spacing of the existing speed tables.
The Brookhaven City Council on June 7, 2016, voted to defer a vote on the resolution until their July 12 meeting.
