Median taking shape quickly

The centerpiece of the Peachtree Boulevard transformation is taking shape at a quick pace. Crews are working day and night to install segments past Piedmont down to Maple Drive. The medians will be landscaped and lined with trees, improving safety for pedestrians and drivers.

Crews are also sandblasting and sealing sidewalks through out project. Tree installation will resume in October.

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:
