3rd Street Concept:  Proposed design of 3rd Street between Spring Street and West Peachtree Street

Project Overview

This project converts the following segments of 3rd Street, 4th Street, 13th Street, and Peachtree Place from one-way to two-way vehicular operation:

  • 3rd Street: Spring St to West Peachtree Street and Peachtree St to Juniper St
