DeKalb Avenue is riddled with potholes, has an outdated and dangerous reversible center lane (aka "suicide lane"), lacks bike lanes, and backs up at key intersections due to the lack of turn lanes.
DeKalb Avenue made the Renew Atlanta list as a Complete Street - this would mean potentially removing the reversible "suicide" lane (a long overdue safety improvement) and replacing it with turn lanes at key intersections, as well as repaving the street, and adding bike lanes or a multi-use path, and safer crossings.
These simple changes would transform a dangerous street into a safe connection from Decatur to the BeltLine and Downtown Atlanta.
Whether you walk, bike, drive, take transit, or all of the above, fixing DeKalb Avenue will benefit you!
