Reporter Newspapers: Buckhead CID moves forward on Wieuca/Phipps roundabout; Ga. 400 park bids come in
John Ruch – March 2, 2016
A roundabout planned as a replacement for the intersection of Wieuca Road and Phipps Boulevard is heading into the design stage. The Buckhead Community Improvement District board on March 2 approved the selection of Pond & Company to do the work.
Meanwhile, the CID is close to a decision about moving forward with a proposed 10-acre park capping Ga. 400 between Lenox and Peachtree roads. Board members are vetting proposals from six design firms and are slated to vote on a top selection at their April 6 meeting.
“We had six outstanding teams [submit]…They absolutely understand the project,” said CID Executive Director Jim Durrett.
