Final traffic paterns for Phase I taking shape - median going in

Final traffic patterns in Phase I of the Peachtree Boulevard transformation are taking place. The most prominent feature is becoming more visible as the landscaped median installation continues southbound. The median will help to establish Peachtree as a true boulevard by improving safety, traffic flow and beauty. The last portion of the new stormwater system is being installed, and crews have started paving beginning at GA 400 and moving south toward Piedmont Road.

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:
