The Georgia Department of Transportation, through consultation with Councilmember Natalyn Archibong, neighborhood leaders, and the Drew Charter School will implement the following traffic changes:
Beginning in June 2017, left turns onto or from East Lake Terrace at Memorial Drive will be prohibited.
The crash history of this intersection and the presence of schoolchildren requires this change. Right turns will still be permitted. Drivers who are trying to go from south to north across Memorial Drive must use other routes where there is better visibility and less danger of head-on collisions. The Atlanta Police will enforce this restriction once the signage has been installed.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
