Lee Street has too many lanes for the amount of vehicular traffic it handles, encouraging high speeds and creating a hazard for all, especially people on foot and on bike, but for motor vehicle traffic as well.
The City of Atlanta and Georgia Department of Transportation should make Lee Street a Complete Street by removing a lane, repaving the street, and adding bike facilities and safer crossings.
These simple changes would transform this currently dangerous street into a safe and accessible connection from Atlanta to East Point for thousands of residents.
A safe walkable/bikeable Lee Street would also connect 3 additional neighborhoods (Beecher-Donnelly, Oakland City, and Ft. McPherson) directly to the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail at the Lee St, with an access point located in the West End.
Whether you walk, bike, drive, take transit, or all of the above, fixing Lee Street would benefit you. Let's increase safety, decrease congestion, and connect our communities.
