Current status: The concept plan is under review in late 2016 by the GDOT.

The 2008 Piedmont Area Transportation Study recommended that the section of Piedmont Road from Peachtree to Lenox Road (the Buckhead Loop) be widened to accommodate at least one additional lane of traffic. The Buckhead CID has developed a concept that will create a seven-lane cross-section to better accommodate traffic flow and enhance pedestrian and cycling opportunities.  Funding has been committed by the Atlanta Regional Commission and Buckhead CID to design the project once the concept is approved, and funding has been committed by the Buckhead CID, the City of Atlanta, GDOT and the Georgia Transportation Infrastructure Bank to construct the project.
