On May 21, 2019, the Buckhead CID, Kimley Horn and Renew Atlanta held a public information meeting for the Piedmont Road, Roswell Road, and Habersham Road intersection.  This meeting was the second of two public meetings, with the first being held in November 2018. Three stakeholder meetings are also being held as part of this project. The first stakeholder meeting was held October 1, 2018, the second on March 27, 2019 and the third will be held before the scheduled conclusion of this study in September 2019. The study will identify a preferred conceptual design alternative for roadway and multi-modal improvements to the study intersections. The preferred alternative will be based on previously completed studies in the project area, relevant studies and design plans for nearby projects, traffic data collection and analysis, roadway and urban design studies, and stakeholder, and public feedback.

The Piedmont Area Transportation Study identified the need to improve the following three signalized intersections:

  • Piedmont Road at Roswell Road
  • Piedmont Road at Habersham Road
  • Roswell Road at Habersham Road

During peak hours, a large volume of vehicles passes through these three closely spaced intersections, resulting in significant traffic congestion at this triangular junction. This study will recommend corridor and intersection improvements to reduce traffic congestion and improve walkability, including but not limited to, adding or eliminating one or more intersection approaches, adding or eliminating intersection signalization, increasing the spacing between intersections and grade separation.

In December 2018, Buckhead community members and those who travel through the Piedmont/Roswell/Habersham triangle were asked to take a survey about the intersection and share ideas how the Buckhead CID can enhance it.

The results are in and more than 430 respondents took the survey!

The Buckhead CID is taking these results and additional research to create three or more conceptual alternatives for roadway, pedestrian facility and placemaking improvements at the Piedmont/Roswell/Habersham triangle.
