Beginning in January 2021, after many unresolved ATL311 reports in 2020, the Piedmont Heights Alliance and Piedmont Heights Civic Association created an ATL311 Task Force to address, escalate and get solutions to ongoing infrastructure issues in our neighborhood.
The Piedmont Heights Alliance's ATL311 Task Force has been working very closely with City of Atlanta's ombudsman and Salethea J. Graham and Commissioner City of Atlanta, Department of Customer Service| ATL311 regarding the ongoing issues on Armour Drive NE under the the MARTA overpass.
February 3, 2021 Status of Armour Drive NE
There are numerous potholes on Armour Drive near 342 Armour Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30324, under the MARTA/Atlanta BeltLine bridge (on the curve) that are unfixable. There have been several ATL311 reports by Piedmont Heights Alliance as well as Emily Baker with Preferred Office Properties- who manage 6 buildings in the Armour Yards area.
The pothole will be patched, inadequately, and then open again a day or two later.
We need a permanent fix to these problems. This was also the site of much flooding due to a traffic cone stuck in the drain. We did fix this problem in August 2019 with help from the Atlanta Beltline and Jennifer Ide after months of consistent work.
This area also has a huge drain that is broken, graffiti and constant sand dumping by the concrete plants that impacts businesses in the district.
RESPONSE FROM Mikita K. Browning, Commissioner City of Atlanta Department of Watershed Management on February March 17, 2021
- Team review of sand and potholes as a base line
- Backhoe was ordered to remove excess sand as well street sweeper
- Graffiti covered
- Drain basin fixed.
