As Beverly Road neighbors, we want to register our complaint and concern about the deplorable and unsafe condition of Beverly Road. It's like a war zone of potholes. Some of the potholes have been patched, but sadly, not all. Additionally, as a result of the recent road traffic calming bumpouts, it is even more difficult to avoid the potholes. Numerous vehicles have been damaged by the many pot holes, broken curbs and metal plates. Atlantas efforts to repair the holes are less than effective as new areas appear daily. During heavy rains, the broken curbs and drains can not handle the water instead causing large pools of water on the road further increasing the danger of this road.
In reality the whole street should be repaved, not just patched.
When we see 17st Street, Inman Circle, Polo Drive and now Montgomery Ferry being repaved, we wonder why not Beverly as it receives the bulk of the traffic. Often, cars are backed up in the morning on Beverly attempting to turn on to Peachtree Street and in the afternoon, the same line appears on Beverly Road waiting to turn on to Montgomery Ferry Road.
Our goal is to alert ATLANTA officials of the deplorable and unsafe condition of this widely used road.
