Tucker, GA — The city of Tucker is working to make Brockett Road safer for pedestrians.

On March 17, crews poured new sidewalks along Brockett Elementary School.

In a Facebook post, the city said, “It’s just a part of our effort to make Brockett Road safer for everyone!” The city identified Brockett Road improvements as one of its priority improvements in 2022.

Following a fatal pedestrian crash on June 10, 2021, the road was slated for a list of improvements including repainting broader lines on the road, installing speed detection devices, conducting traffic-calming analysis and filling in sidewalks on the east side.

Neighbors and relatives say that Kaur took daily walks in the area. They also said that drivers on Brockett regularly exceed the speed limit and drive recklessly.
