Ponce de Leon Ave. Road Improvement Meetings Set

Meetings scheduled for Feb. 7, 2013 to discuss forthcoming road improvements that will be concentrated between Juniper Street and Briarcliff Road/Moreland Avenue with street resurfacing extending beyond that scope.

Ponce De Leon Avenue through the Midtown and Poncey-Highland neighborhoods is slated for several road improvement projects over the next several years to enhance its efficiency and improve the mobility of pedestrians, cyclist, and vehicles.

These projects include resurfacing, lane reconfiguration, ADA accessibility improvements, and improved access to public transportation as well as the Atlanta BeltLine.

Improvements will be concentrated between Juniper Street and Briarcliff Road/Moreland Avenue with street resurfacing extending beyond that scope.

The City of Atlanta and Atlanta BeltLine are partnering with the Georgia Department of Transportation to coordinate these projects. Those groups have invited local business owners and residents in the area to attend open house meetings to learn more about the road improvement projects, anticipated sequencing of these projects, and more detailed schedule information where possible.

Two meetings are set for Feb. 7, 2013. The first for local business owners in the area will be from 7:30-9 a.m. at the Ponce City Market community room located at 650 North Avenue. Parking is limited and walking, biking and carpooling is encouraged.

Then a public community meeting will be held from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Inman Middle School auditorium located at 774 Virginia Avenue. Inman MS is accessible via MARTA bus route 36 and 99 and check with MARTA for schedules.

For more information, contact Beth McMillan at 404-477-3550 and bmcmillan@atlbeltline.org, or Lynnette Reid at 404-477-3551 and lreid@atlbeltline.org.

Cool, I hope their improvement zeal includes what mills around and criminalizes the sidewalks.

I hope they include the current ponce/Moreland corridor study we have already spent tons of time money and effort on.
