UPDATE: Road Closure Dates for Northside Drive Confirmed
Posted on Posted on Jul 24th, 2020
The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has issued a Press Release related to the closing of Northside Drive, between Peachtree Battle Avenue and Wesley Drive, for 90 days beginning on September 8, 2020 (weather and on-site conditions permitting). Click HERE for the full announcement.  
 
PBA is taking steps to make sure all of our households are informed and prepared for the upcoming closure.  Block captains will be distributing an information flyer to all PBA mailboxes that will answer many of your questions.  We hope to have these flyers distributed by mid-August.  We will also have important information on the homepage of the PBA website for your quick access as we progress through the closure.

The city detour map can be found HERE and we are hoping for an update that will include signage at Sagamore and Peachtree Battle, which is lacking in this version.  Please take a look at the map.  Have additional concerns about it?  Let us know HERE.  

Lastly, Catherine Spillman of AMPC has been an amazing advocate for our neighborhood and surrounding neighborhoods throughout this planning process.  If you see her around Memorial Park, be sure to tell her to keep up the great work and how much we appreciate her efforts.
