I live on Howell Mill and it's not really that bad. I agree that the area up there closer to Collier can get really congested, as can the section between 75 and Chattahoochee. But Northside is a godsend, really, as it runs parallel to Howell Mill and tends to be way less congested. And there are tons of side streets to work around.

Having said that, I do wonder how well Howell Mill is going to hold up with all these new apartments coming in. I'm all for density, but I really wish we were doing more for transportation/transit infrastructure improvements on the Westside.

(Sigh. TSPLOST would have helped us out a lot in that regard.)

Anyone know anything about the area near the glenlocke grove subdivision? It's near the intersection of Bolton rd and northwest drive. Close to 285.

People who live in the area know the back streets. I also live in 30318 and I know A LOT of backstreets to avoid Howell Mill at its traffic height.

Northside Drive will probably become more trafficky when Peachtree Rd/St is converted to two lanes each way with a center turn lane. I think those changes will send more people looking for a north-south alternate, making Northside less appealing as a relief from Howell Mill.

Perry Homes is not far from where the West End Park is going in, and sort of in the Bolton-ish, Riverside-ish area that's been getting a lot of upward pressure from being not too far from the more affluent communities of Smyrna, Buckhead, midtown, Bolton and Vinings. I would consider Perry Homes established, and it has the potential of slowly transforming the area around it. Some of the areas to the West of it are transitional since they just destroyed some projects called Hollywood Courts a few years ago.
