GDOT Briarcliff Road Safety Audit

The Georgia Department of Transportation, in collaboration with the Federal Highway Administration, is conducting a Road Safety Audit (RSA) for State Route 42 (Briarcliff Road NE), from Ponce de Leon Avenue NE to North Druid Hills Road.

An RSA is a formal safety performance examination of an existing or future road or intersection by an interdisciplinary team of transportation professionals. They are proactive tools that use an innovative approach, including firsthand observations, to identify potential safety issues and enhancement opportunities to be considered in improvement projects. The audit team would like to gather your thoughts about potential safety concerns and possible solutions to those safety concerns along this corridor.

RSAs have been used successfully for a wide variety of locations to identify potential solutions leading to both short-term improvements and longer term efforts including construction projects.

For more information, or to take the survey, please click here. Please note, this survey will be available until Friday April 15, 2016.

Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative Announces Locally Preferred Alternative

MARTA Planning staff has completed the review of community feedback and technical analysis and have finalized a recommended locally preferred alternative (LPA) for the Clifton Corridor. The LPA is the alternative that, based on technical analysis and stakeholder input, would most effectively address the needs of the corridor and goals and objectives of the project.

The recommended LPA includes 8.8 miles of new light rail transit (LRT) service connecting the Lindbergh MARTA Station to the Emory/Clifton Corridor and beyond to the Avondale MARTA Station. The recommendation for the locally preferred alternative includes several tunnels and one of those tunnels extends from an area west of Lenox Road to an area just west of Briarcliff Road.
