THE VININGS BYPASS
This effort to divert pass-through traffic from Vinings is an ongoing project the VCCA has spent hundreds of hours on. Even though most of our members are not pass-through drivers, diminishing the pass-through traffic would benefit us all. Word of mouth could help reach the broader audience.
From those working with the County, word is the Paces Mill/Paces Ferry intersection work will take 9 months to complete. Bids are to be let by November of this year. It is hoped the disruption will prompt motorists to seek alternate routes. The committee plans a series of signs along Cobb Pkwy/Northside Dr. to encourage people to take this alternate route..."The Vinings Bypass". The flow bypass will continue up Cobb Pkwy., left on Cumberland Blvd, to Wilkerson Pkwy., to Spring Hill Pkwy., to Paces Ferry where the Panera Bread restaurant is located.
THE FOUNTAIN MOVE
As a part of the Vinings Bypass & infrastructure project, the island at the intersection of Paces Mill & Paces Ferry will be no longer. With that, our beloved fountain that sits atop the island will be moved to property belonging to the Vinings Historic Preservation Society - likely the Pace House - when construction begins in early 2019.
