Atlanta, Georgia (February 24, 2023) - Following several complaints about crashes and unsafe road conditions, the city of Atlanta intends to repair DeKalb Avenue.
The route from DeKalb County to Downtown Atlanta is a main thoroughfare.
There are an unusual number of lanes, one of which is a reversible lane that runs down the center.
Drivers have been confused by the road, and traffic signals occasionally fail.
Accidents have accumulated. In one instance, a driver who believed she was making a legal turn collided with a motorcycle rider. The motorcyclist died.
The city attorney advised the members of the Atlanta City Council to reach a settlement with the family of the deceased 40-year-old educator. The city actually did just that. More than $3 million was spent on the settlement.
The Atlanta Transportation Commissioner informed the local lawmakers that Jackson Street to Oxford Place will no longer have a reversible lane.
DeKalb Avenue neighbors can find out more about what's to come.
When a person dies in a car accident as a result of another driver's negligence, the surviving family has the legal right to file a wrongful death claim against the at-fault driver.
