Phase three of the Peachtree Transformation (Maple Drive to West Shadowlawn Avenue) is currently in the right of way acquisition 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.
Additionally, there are two distinct, but integrated, projects along Peachtree Road south of Shadowlawn. These will be reviewed during an Oct. 29 public information open house.
1. Deering Road to Pharr Road
2. Pharr Road to Shadowlawn Avenue
The public information open house is described below.
