Crews from the DeKalb County Public Works Department are repairing one
of the more heavily traveled areas in the Stone Mountain Community
Improvement District (CID).
All four lanes of Mountain Industrial Boulevard from Tuckerstone
Parkway to North Royal Drive are now being repaved. This road segment
receives constant travel, including much traffic from heavy vehicles
such as tractor trailers.
Repaving was necessitated by the deterioration of the asphalt
surface and underlying supporting pavement base material. As
deterioration occurred, potholes and numerous cracks in the pavement
surface formed. Moisture from the wet summer accelerated the
deterioration in combination with heavy truck loads.
CID Chairman Larry Callahan said the many businesses located along
Mountain Industrial Boulevard were seeking assistance in improving road
conditions. The CID was able to help draw attention to an area most
immediately in need of county services.
“Our business and commercial property owners greatly appreciate the
efforts of DeKalb County Public Works to address problems on the
Mountain Industrial corridor,” Callahan said. “The CID has benefited
from a close working relationship with county leaders and departments.
We are working together to advance repair projects and maintain solid
infrastructure in our community.”
CID staff routinely patrol the district to note areas of damaged or
failing road, sidewalk and drainage fixtures. A log of these findings is
regularly updated and shared with the DeKalb County Public Works
In addition to the paving, 24 signs illuminated by light-emitting
diodes (LED) are now operational at night to service intersections along
Mountain Industrial Boulevard and at the Hugh Howell-Tucker Industrial
Road intersection. The CID and State Road & Tollway Authority funded
the sign project.
