Atlanta High School Students Find Crumbling Side Walks

A group of high school students are working with Georgia State University to bring attention to crumbling sidewalks near Ponce De Leon Avenue near the Ponce City Market.

“We’re mapping the sidewalks on Ponce De Leon and we have a baby stroller and a GoPro and we’re pushing the baby in the video to show what it’s like to push a stroller and how the baby will react,” said Anya Lomsadze, a high school student.

CBS46 spoke to pedestrians who said people in wheelchairs have a hard time maneuvering across the crumbling sidewalks.

The information the students compiled will now be taken to city and state leaders to have changes made.
