They are converting the center turn lane into a raised median with landscaping and designated spots for left turns and u-turns.

Perhaps you've been in NC and seen the yellow signs of two downward arrows indicating an upcoming concrete curb that will separate a left turn lane from the thru lane.

So L5P's concrete pavement was a former complete streets effort?

I think the grassy island was just cut for the first time this year. That section under the train tracks needs some TLC of better routine maintenance.


Moreland is a workhorse for sure.

I requested to Public Works to fix the uncompliant radiused corner at North Avenue by at least removing the raised concrete but no action.

That is limiting how many cars get through each light cycle at rush hour and exacerbating air pollution.
I'm not fond of those continuous left turn lanes. They are head on collisions waiting to happen in addition to being pedestrian unfriendly. Raised medians with periodic left turn lanes are much better.

I could see that, and it would be an easy lift financially for Emory.

That'd sure ease some congestion in this corridor.
