Atlanta City Council voted unanimously at its May 4 meeting to approve a list of infrastructure repairs and improvements that will be paid for with $250 million in bonds. Voters approved the infrastructure bonds in a special election in March.
The list of projects includes improvements to streets and bridges, resurfacing of roadways, new traffic signals, new bike lanes, upgrades to facilities and money for public art.
Some Buckhead projects on the list include resurfacing Lenox, West Wieuca, Peachtree Dunwoody and Paces Ferry roads. There also are plans to repave and install bike lanes on East Paces Ferry Road. Flashing signal lights to alert motorists of pedestrians will be installed near a number of schools, including Garden Hills Elementary.
