Work is planned to repaint the lines on West Paces Ferry to try to eliminate drivers’ confusion.
The restriping, to be done later this year, will reconfigure lanes on West Paces. As part of the project, a new pedestrian crosswalk and mid-street “island” is proposed, Buckhead Community Improvement District officials said.
A recent reworking of lanes along the stretch of road confused some drivers, the CID officials said.
“The public is going to be very much pleased with this [new design],” Buckhead CID Executive Director Jim Durrett predicted.
The new design, drawn by consultants Kimley-Horn and Associates, covers lanes on West Paces Ferry Road from Peachtree Road to East Andrews Drive. The new striping is intended to create two vehicle lanes in each direction, an eastbound bike lane and a westbound shared bike/car lane, the CID says on its website.
