GDOT to hold open house on Northside Rd./Peachtree Creek bridge

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is holding a public information open house Tuesday, March 1, to present its concepts for the Northside Drive bridge replacement over Peachtree Creek at Atlanta Memorial Park.

The public forum will be held from 4 -7 p.m. Tuesday at the Northside United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall at 2799 Northside Drive, just south of the Sutton Middle School campus.

The bridge over Peachtree Creek, built in 1926, failed the GDOT studies to determine adequacy and integrity of bridges and is a candidate for replacement. How that replacement will be accomplished is to be determined.

No formal presentation is scheduled for March 1st. Attendees may review the displays and stop at any point to speak one-on-one with project staff. All participants are invited to submit comments at the open house.

Many different points of view are on the table for the the proposed project. One is sponsored by the Atlanta Memorial Park Neighborhood Association. Another set of ideas is part of the Memorial Park Conservancy’s Master Plan. Other approaches will be considered as well. The open house is the time to present alternative suggestions to GDOT.

      The depiction shown makes it almost impossible (or at least very difficult) to get to the Bobby Jones Club House & Course from Northside Drive…someone headed Northbound on Nothside would need to go well-past the course (to P’tree Battle), and then loop back around and come south via Montview or (more likely) Havenridge…
