Downtown Atlanta Roads Set To Reopen Following Irma

Sep 14, 2017

Some roads in downtown Atlanta that were closed because of storm damage from Irma reopened Thursday afternoon.

For the past few days, the area around 34 Peachtree Street has been roped off with caution tape.

On Sunday, winds from Tropical Storm Irma knocked metal panels off the 32-story office tower. More fell on Monday when the storm hit the city full force.

No one was hurt, but police closed off the area because they worried more panels would fall.

Now that repairs have completed, officials say Woodruff Park and sections of Peachtree Street and Edgewood Avenue are back open.
