Sen. Ossoff announces safety improvements coming for Buford Highway
ATLANTA, Ga. (Atlanta News First) - U.S. Sen. Jon Ossoff says safety improvements are coming to Buford Highway.
Sen. Ossoff will hold a press conference Friday at 8:30 a.m. alongside Doraville Mayor Joseph Geierman, Georgia Department of Transportation Commissioner Russell McMurry, MARTA General Manager and CEO Collie Greenwood, and community leaders to discuss the upgrades they are delivering to improve safety along Buford Highway for drivers and pedestrians.
Sen. Ossoff secured bipartisan support in Congress for the infrastructure project, which will make pedestrian improvements at key intersections along Buford Highway within the City of Doraville, including I-285, Oakcliff Road, McElroy Road, and Longmire Way.
Sen. Ossoff said where Buford Highway meets 285, there will be a new ramp for pedestrian access, new lighting, and drainage improvements. Several intersections along Buford Highway will get similar improvements.
Funding for these safety upgrades will come from the U.S. Department of Transportation.
