Granite curb going in, followed by new, wider sidewalk

Following the holiday break and a week of snow, progress on the Peachtree Boulevard transformation is back at full speed. Crews are installing the granite curbs you may have noticed stacked just north of Maggiano's. 

Before installation, these curbs are more than 15 inches tall (the former Buckhead CID ED called them the "Cliffs of Dover")! Once installed below grade, however, only six inches will be exposed, forming an attractive and sturdy transition from the road to the sidewalk buffer.
