DeKalb Avenue is riddled with potholes, has an outdated and dangerous reversible center lane (aka "suicide lane"), lacks bike lanes, and backs up at key intersections due to the lack of turn lanes.
We believe the City of Atlanta should make DeKalb Avenue a Complete Street by removing the center "suicide" lane, repaving to fix the potholes, and adding bike facilities, turn lanes, and safer crossings.
These simple changes would transform this currently dangerous street into a safe and accessible connection from Decatur to Atlanta for thousands of residents.
Whether you walk, bike, drive, take transit, or all of the above, fixing DeKalb Avenue would benefit you. Let's increase safety, decrease congestion, and connect our communities. Please sign our petition to make DeKalb Avenue a Complete Street.
- City of Atlanta, Mayor Kasim Reed
