At first this area only presented a pedestrian hazard with the destruction of the sidewalks here – but City of Atlanta had the contractor move the “sidewalk closed” sign eastward to PDL Place solving that problem. But, now the contractor has moved out into the traffic lanes – effectively forcing westbound traffic in the curbside lane to move over. I reported this to Public Works – but they have deferred to the GaDOT – since PDL Avenue is a state highway. Hope a warning sign is posted soon before there is a terrible accident in this area.
The CVS drugstore construction project seems to have somewhat scattered the wannabe workers along PDL, but pedestrian access to the shopping area is still sometimes blocked right at the entrance next to this construction site. It is my hope that the new CVS will not allow the narrow sidewalks along this area to be blocked for easy and safe pedestrian access. I am also glad to see that a new scooter store has opened at the corner of PDL and PDL – keeping this vital corner free of vagrants. I wish this new business success at this corner. Further east – the new pet care facility at the site of the former Central Electric is eliminating another gathering place for vagrants.
