Second median now going in

Construction of the second median is now underway, starting north of Tower Place. Final traffic patterns in Phase I of the Peachtree Boulevard transformation are taking place. The landscaped medians will help to establish Peachtree as a true boulevard by improving safety, traffic flow and beauty. Crews continue to widen Peachtree Road and install new granite curbs and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks.

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:
