Update: Atlanta (Fulton)
In October, Barbara Cook told us about a complex traffic issue in the city.
“When you travel southbound on the Buford Spring Connector and take the Peachtree Street fork to the left at the end, the first traffic signal you come to controls the intersection at Spring Street,” Cook wrote.
She said years ago it was not unlawful to drive across Peachtree Street at that traffic signal and continue straight ahead onto Peachtree Circle to enter the Ansley Park neighborhood.
“I suppose everyone got used to being able to do so, particularly folks who were exiting the Buford Connector to get to their homes in Ansley Park. But at some point the signage was changed at the end of South Rhodes Center NW with the intent of forcing traffic either left or right onto Peachtree Street disallowing traffic to cross Peachtree Street onto Peachtree Circle,” Cook said.
Cook wrote the left and right turn only lane arrows were painted on the road itself, and a no through traffic sign was suspended above the street adjacent to the traffic signal.
We have not received a response, so we sent the issue back to the city.
