Peachtree Transformation

Current status: Phase three of the Peachtree Transformation (Maple Drive to West Shadowlawn Avenue) is currently in the design phase. Phase four of the Peachtree Transformation (West Shadowlawn Avenue and ends at Sheridan Drive) is currently in the design phase.–

The Peachtree Transformation is taking a pedestrian-unfriendly suburban arterial and creating a sophisticated, attractive complete street by adding granite curbing and medians, hardwood trees, seasonal color landscaping, bike lanes, wide sidewalks, modern lighting, buried utility lines, street furniture, and dedicated left turn lanes at signaled intersections.

The first phase of the project was completed in 2007 and runs from GA 400 to one block south of Piedmont Road at Maple Drive.

The second phase was completed in 2012 and runs from GA 400 to the intersection of Roxboro Road and Peachtree Road.


A traffic analysis is being performed to guide development of design and model conditions both with and without potential future roadway modifications for the next phases of Peachtree.

Phase three, which begins at Maple Drive and extends to West Shadowlawn Avenue, and is funded by grants from the Georgia Infrastructure Bank and the ARC, is in the preliminary design phase and the Buckhead CID will start the “right of way” phase in late 2015. Construction should begin in late 2016.

Phase four, which begins at West Shadowlawn Avenue and ends at Sheridan Drive, is projected to be funded by private sources.

Phases three and four of the Peachtree Transformation are part of a larger system enhancement called “operation improvements” of Peachtree Road extending south to Spring Street in Midtown.

The primary goal of the project is to reduce crashes by modifying the existing roadway cross-section to include designated left-turn lanes lanes and potentially bike lanes.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is leading the other phases of the project in coordination with the City of Atlanta and Midtown Alliance. A working group called The Peachtree Task Force has been formed to coordinate design and public involvement for the entire corridor.

Peachtree Road Open House
The Buckhead CID hosted its second open house in April 2014 at the Peachtree Road United Methodist Church (PRUMC).  Professionals were on hand to share concept drawings, discuss the project and answer questions.

The next public meeting will be scheduled after GDOT analysis has been received and incorporated with our findings in order to be presented to the public.
