Pedestrian Enhancements

Safe pedestrian access is critical to the Clifton Corridor. Emory and the Clifton Community Partnership sponsored the creation of Urban Design Guidelines that support an enhanced walking experience. Among the improvements:

  • DeKalb County supported the pedestrian and bicycle improvements in Emory Village (including the successful implementation of the village roundabout).  
  • Emory funded sidewalk connections on Clifton Road between Old Briarcliff Road and 1762 Clifton Road and funded significant pedestrian and intersection improvements on Clifton Road between North Decatur Road and Haygood Road.  
  • The Point includes streetscape improvements along its frontage on Clifton Road.   
  • Emory is working on additional multiuse trails throughout its campus with support from the PATH Foundation. 

Emory’s Office of Sustainability provides a walking map of the area, and the PATH Foundation and Southfork Conservancy also promote local pedestrian paths and trails.
