Thank you to everyone who submitted their comments to Renew Atlanta in support of the DeKalb Avenue Complete Street in APRIL 2017.
Our goal for DeKalb Avenue is to create a high-quality multi-use trail that's safe for people who bike and walk, as well as left turn lanes to reduce the car congestion that typically backs up drivers at all hours of the day.
Based on this criteria, we recommend Option 50B and 70A. You can review all the options, including the intersection designs on the Renew Atlanta website.
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!
