The city of Dunwoody plans to pave 41 streets this year, moving up 12 streets that were originally set to be paved later. 

The Dunwoody City Council approved the paving program for 2021 at a Feb. 9 meeting, along with a contract extension with Blount Construction for the amount of $2,960,709 with a 10% contingency for pavement resurfacing in 2021. The city first entered into a paving contract with Blount Construction in 2018. 

According to a press release, the majority of the funding for the paving plan comes from DeKalb County’s special local option sales tax. The Georgia Department of Transportation will give $401,000 through Local Maintenance and Improvement Grant funds. 

Public Works Director Michael Smith said the city looks forward to beginning the paving process “as soon as warmer weather arrives.”
