A public open house is planned for Feb. 19 to get feedback on plans to revamp Peachtree Road from Maple Drive to Sheridan Drive in Buckhead.

Proposals to make improvements to the street could include center lanes for turning and bike lanes, plus streetscape improvements, according to an earlier Patch story.

The Peachtree Road Task Force is a joint effort of the Buckhead CID, the City of Atlanta, the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Brookwood Alliance and the Midtown Alliance.  

Planners are starting with the idea to limit north-south lanes to two in each direction. Two existing lanes would be used to create a center lane dedicated for left turns and for much narrower bike lanes north and south.

The Buckhead Community Improvement District will host a public open house to gain feedback, present concept drawings, explain the project in detail and seek/answer questions and concerns regarding the project. Residents can drop in between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. Feb. 19 at The Buckhead Theatre, 3110 Roswell Road.

Parking at The Buckhead Theatre can be found on a surface parking lot adjacent to the theater for $5 per vehicle. Additional surface parking lots are located within a short walking distance of the theatre. Paid on-street parking is also available in front of the theatre along Roswell Road.

The Buckhead Theatre is also eaccessible via MARTA bus route 110, which travels along the Peachtree Road corridor.
