Construction crews are working on the Peachtree Boulevard project, which is to remake a 1.5-mile stretch of Peachtree Road through Buckhead, from Maple Drive south of Piedmont, past Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza to Roxboro Road. The completed project calls for new sidewalks, green space, bike lanes and improved transit stops. Above, at left, construction crews continue their work on Peachtree Boulevard. Above, at right, Candis Mixon, general contractor, goes over plans for the wall.
When the project is completed, the area will see 11,500 feet of new sidewalks like the one being built at left, and 50,000 square feet of green space.
