The Emory University has begun a street widening project on Clifton Road. The Clifton Road Streetscape, a project to improve access, safety and visual appeal along Clifton Road began at the intersection of Clifton Road and Haygood Drive and extends south to the intersection of Clifton Road and North Decatur Road.
The project involves widening the road and sidewalks, repaving Clifton Road, adding turn lanes, new landscaping and new access points to the road. The Clifton Road project also supports Emory University Hospital’s new bed tower on Clifton Road.
This weekend access to pass through this section of Clifton Road will be restricted, except for ambulance traffic and emergency room drop-offs. Beginning July 25, traffic will resume to all four lanes, with periodic lane closures throughout the remainder of the project.
Both the road improvements and the bed tower should be completed by early summer 2017, weather permitting. Motorist may want to consider alternate routes.
