New median to improve traffic flow

The Peachtree Boulevard Transformation is becoming much more visible this month. Crews have started installing the landscaped median at the MARTA bridge moving south past Piedmont. The median will improve traffic flow, pedestrian safety and the beauty of Peachtree in Buckhead. Crews are continuing to install granite curbs and the new, wider sidewalks, with trees to create a canopy of shade for pedestrians, making Buckhead a more walkable place. Stormwater drainage installation and the relocation of utilities are complete. Real changes are happening in Buckhead and its visitors are already enjoying them.

The Peachtree Boulevard transformation is the major enhancement of a stretch of Peachtree Road in Buckhead into a more livable, walkable, bikable and drivable promenade. The transformation will allow Peachtree to live up to its reputation as Atlanta’s “signature street.” It will become a destination, not just a throughway. Information is available at:
