What is Section III?

The Lenox Road Complete Safe Street project is the result of the Lenox Road Scoping Study completed in 2017. The study identified opportunities to create equity for all users (pedestrian & vehicular), to address operational improvements, and to improve access to and from GA 400. The Lenox Road Complete Safe Street project focuses on improving the pedestrian and bicycle network along Lenox Road with expanded sidewalks/multi-use trails/side paths; new streetscape improvements to mirror the aesthetics of Peachtree Road; and operational improvements at the GA400 interchange to allow for safe pedestrian/bicycle crossings.

This is the third phase of the Lenox Road Complete Safe Street project (SR141 Conn from CS 7005/Phipps Blvd to SR 237 – Section III: PI# 0017981). It includes the design of an elevated pedestrian/bicycle connection over the GA 400 / Lenox Road interchange and additional bicycle and pedestrian connectivity. The project termini are Piedmont Road on the west and Phipps Boulevard on the east. This project will connect with the PATH400 greenway trail as well as provide public access to the north end of the future HUB404.

What Does Section III Entail?

Section III will result in a draft elevated pedestrian/bicycle connection concept report for submittal to Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and ultimately approval to move on to the next phase of the project: construction. In an effort to hear from potential complete street users a virtual public meeting and a two-week input period will allow community members to view conceptual designs of the elevated pedestrian/bicycle connection and provide feedback.

Project Status

For Section I of the project, right-of-way acquisition is underway and construction is scheduled to begin in Q4 of 2022 while Section II of Lenox Road Complete Safe Street issued an RFQ to provide engineering design services. The work on the Section III concept report is underway, and a public meeting was held on September 19, 2022. You can view a PDF version of the presentation here, and a recording of the meeting here.

The Atlanta Regional Commission awarded BCID and our partner, City of Atlanta, $4 million in federal funds for construction of Section III.
