Just like the developments that block the sidewalks for multiple years and force pedestrians to cross the street !

If there is an existing sidewalk that is blocked due to construction, then the builder should provide a protected walkway.

Did Keane get this approved by the city or are we still reliant on developer's good will? Hanover West Peachtree comes to mind.

Sounds familiar, I just cannot place my finger on it. That said, even w/the addition of the protected sidewalk for The Mark in Midtown, it's jamming up Spring street on a daily basis and will continue until construction completes. Would have been a fun time to plow ahead w/the complete street while everything is already in disarray

Our city streets should not be for cars, but rather people.

Agree agree agree. People are literally dying as we wait for an interconnected bike/ped network to be built out in Atlanta.

My understanding is that that law has been on the books. It is enforcement that is the issue.

Person. Singular. There is usually just one.

We need to allocate usage of our finite street space by it's ability to safely and best serve the most people. That means a lot less space to that person in a car so that space can be used by better and safer alternatives for more people such as walking, biking, scooters, and transit.
