This project consists of the improvement of LaVista Road at the intersections of Oak Grove Road and Oak Grove Drive and the safety and operational improvements to LaVista Road at the intersections of Fair Oaks Road and Frazier Road. The project also includes corridor improvements including landscaping, lighting and the addition of bicycle lanes and sidewalks. The proposed intersection improvements include realigning the two intersecting side roads at Oak Grove Road and Oak Grove Drive to meet at a common intersection, adding appropriate auxiliary lanes at the new intersection approaches, improving existing safety conditions at the intersection, improving traffic and pedestrian control, and adding sidewalk for a distance of 0.5 mile along the LaVista Road approaches.
The realignment of Oak Grove Road and Oak Grove Drive will eliminate the approximate 100 foot separation between the intersection points and provide a minimum intersection angle of 70 degrees for both approaches. Due to existing land use constraints, the majority of the side road realignment will be on the Oak Grove Road approach. The intersection improvements at Frazier Road include reconfiguration of the existing intersections to improve efficiency through new signal phasing and through the addition of auxiliary lanes. The existing intersections are located within 200 feet of each other and are currently a bottleneck through the busy LaVista Road corridor. A portion of the project is a federally funded GDOT project that also includes raised landscaped median, pedestrian lighting, shoulder landscaping and as well as other aesthetic improvements, to keep consistent with DeKalb County future corridor improvements along LaVista Road.
