Buford Hwy, from Northeast Plaza to the area past Plaza Fiesta, is in dire need of sidewalks. It is very difficult for disabled people, parents with baby strollers, teenagers or anyone to stay active in the pedestrian lifestyle when they have to go onto the streets just to get by all the bumps and gravel because there is a lack of sidewalks on both sides of Buford Hwy.
Georgia DOT wants to start their $11.5 million upgrade beginning with the areas near the Latin American Association. The areas between Northeast Plaza and Plaza Fiesta area should be prioritized, not areas that are already "developed" such as the Lenox/Chesire Bridge to Northeast Plaza area.
Here are links as this issue has already been brought up before in the past:
