Lenox Road Complete Street

Current as of 10/24/22

About the Project

The Lenox Road Complete Street fulfills the plans outlined in the Lenox Road Scoping Study within the 2017 BUCKHEAD REdeFINED plan. This project includes three phases, all of which are currently in progress. The focus of Phase I will be the Lenox Boardwalk, a new urban linear park that includes a 10’-12’ multiuse trail along Lenox Road between Peachtree Road (SR 141) and the Lenox MARTA Station (on East Paces Ferry Road). Phase II will enhance pedestrian infrastructure, traffic flow and overall appearance starting at Peachtree Road and continuing to Phipps Boulevard. Phase III will address the section of Lenox Rd. between Piedmont Rd. and Phipps Blvd. and will include an elevated pedestrian and bicycle bridge.
