Growth and development in surrounding areas of Vinings have generated traffic issues that require solutions to increasing congestion. Plan projects aim to encourage traffic to bypass the community using alternative routes. Others goals are to reduce delays at intersections via the use of roundabouts, new turning options, and “traffic calming” devices to improve safety.
