The goal is to improve traffic flow and increase safety on Ashford-Dunwoody Road, starting at Interstate 285 and running through the northern part of the city.

"It is a major traffic thoroughfare and is subject to some congestion, particularly in peak traffic times, and we want to make sure that we plan for it in the future," said Brookhaven spokesman Burke Brennan.

According to this week’s Atlanta Business Chronicle, Children's Healthcare of Atlanta plans to build a $1 billion to $1.3 billion hospital on a 46-acre site at North Druid Hills Road and Interstate 85 in the city of Brookhaven.

The new facility will address worsening space constraints at Children’s – which currently has campuses in downtown Atlanta, Sandy Springs and on Clifton Road – and will allow the hospital to meet forecasted patient care and space needs through 2026 and projected demand to 2036 and beyond.
