Atlanta New Year's Eve downtown street closures

Posted By on Wed, Dec 31, 2008 at 7:53 PM

If you're behind the wheel this evening, make sure you avoid the area around Underground Atlanta. City police will block off some vehicular traffic so lots of people can look at a foam-and-fiberglass peach, listen to unknown country music stars, and get wild in a part of town where few people visit the other 364 days of the year.

From the city:

Streets that will be closed for the Peach Drop are:

• Alabama Street from Forsyth to Peachtree streets

• Wall Street from Central Avenue to Peachtree Street

• Marietta Street/Decatur Street from Spring Street to Central Avenue

• Walton Street from Forsyth to Peachtree streets

• Luckie Street/Auburn Avenue from Forsyth to Peachtree Center Avenue

• Williams Street from Forsyth to Peachtree streets

• Forsyth Street from M. L. King Jr. Drive to Walton Street

• Broad Street from Marietta to Peachtree streets

• Peachtree Street from M. L. King Jr. Drive to Ellis Street

• Park Place from J.W. Dobbs Avenue to Decatur Street

• Equitable Place from Auburn to Edgewood avenues

• Pryor Street from Decatur Street to M. L. King

• J.W. Dobbs Avenue from Peachtree Street to Peachtree Center Avenue

• Edgewood Avenue from Peachtree Street to Central Avenue


Vehicular traffic will be allowed to flow on, but not enter the perimeter formed by:

• Central Avenue and Peachtree Center Avenue on the east;

• Spring Street, Walton Street and Forsyth Street on the west;

• M. L. King on the south; and Ellis Street and Carnegie Way on the north.
