Adrean, Shook seek city study of Peachtree corridor traffic impacts
The legislation before City Council asks for a determination of just how heavy traffic really is in the Peachtree Road corridor, and how the congestion impacts the delivery of key city services.
The resolution also aims to project future congestion levels should the area grow to the maximum density envisioned by Atlanta’s Comprehensive Development Plan. The districts of Adrean and Shook share the densely developed area.
“The time has come to meet our traffic problem head-on,” said Adrean.
“People need to know if our traffic congestion is merely a nuisance, or a legitimate threat to our health, safety, and welfare,” said Shook. “Either way, this study will help point a way forward.”
The work will be performed by Arcadis/BPA, an on-call firm Atlanta can utilize when engineering or design expertise is needed. The study’s cost and delivery date will be determined by the time the legislation appears in committee next week.
