June has been a big month for Doraville's Department of Public Works crews, with four major infrastructure projects overseen by Larry King, the City's public works director. A fifth, involving a stop bar and stop sign at Wheeler and Chestnut drives, is expected to be completed next week.

The four projects:

Picnic pavilion at Brook Park in Northwoods. Accessibility to the pavilion has been enhanced by the installation of a retaining wall and a path of decomposed granite, and two picnic tables and two grills have been added.

Intersection of Winters Chapel and Amwiler roads. Safety has been improved with fresh striping at the busy intersection and along Winters Chapel. Bollards will prevent hazardous left turns into and from the convenience store at the intersection.

Best Friends and Pleasantdale roads near the Gwinnett County line. Large potholes have been paved over. (This is the only project of the four that did not use SPLOST funds.)

Striping along Park Avenue. As part of this project, the stop bar at Park and Buford Highway has been moved back as a safety measure.
