10th Street Bridge Multi-Modal Enhancement Project
Midtown Alliance, in partnership with the City of Atlanta TSPLOST Program, is planning multi-modal enhancements for the 10th Street Bridge spanning the Downtown Connector. This project was identified in the Connect Atlanta Plan and refined in the Midtown Transportation Plan. Located in the heart of Midtown, 10th Street is a critical connection that serves multiple purposes - connecting drivers to and from the Interstate; MARTA passengers from the Midtown Station; Georgia Tech fans heading to McCamish Pavilion; and people on foot and bikes going to campus, to their homes, or to offices. Over 35,000 people travel the 10th Street Bridge each weekday.
The project calls for multi-modal enhancements to 10th Street between Techwood Drive on the west side of the bridge and Williams Street on the east side, as well as improvements on the southbound Techwood Drive ramps and northbound Williams Street.
Midtown Alliance, in partnership with the City of Atlanta, is hosting a public information open house on Thursday, September 5, 2019 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at 999 Peachtree Street (details below). At the open house Midtown Alliance and the project design team will present conceptual designs for the 10th Street Bridge Multi-modal Enhancement Project and solicit feedback from attendees on the proposed design. The purpose of this open house is to provide the public with an opportunity to learn more about the project, view preliminary designs, and provide comments. There will not be a formal presentation, so the public is invited to attend and speak to project staff anytime during the open house. Comment cards will be available to provide written feedback on the project. A court reporter will also be available to allow attendees to provide verbal comments.
