Peachtree Road - let's keep connecting the city

The Buckhead CID and Georgia Department of Transportation's Peachtree Road project started as a safety initiative to reduce crashes - mainly car crashes. It proposed taking advantage of a repaving opportunity to convert Peachtree Road from a 6 lane free-for-all into 5 organized lanes with two-way left turn lanes.  But the brouhaha in Buckhead over bike lanes has overshadowed the safety benefits of the project.  Bike lanes on Peachtree Road would connect with the BeltLine and form an important link in our city's bike network. Please attend the public meeting on the future of Peachtree Thursday, October 29 from 5-7pm at the Shepherd Center, 2020 Peachtree Road.
