New 13th Street Traffic Signals

 

Project Overview 

Building off Midtown Alliance and the City of Atlanta’s effort to create safe intersection crossings for people walking, biking, taking transit, driving, and using shareable mobility devices, this project will install three (3) new traffic signals at the following intersections:

  1. West Peachtree St and 13th Street
  2. Peachtree Street and 13th Street
  3. Juniper Street and 13th Street


The project scope includes new traffic signal equipment, mast arms and poles, ADA compliant ramps and crosswalks, as well as appropriate signage and lane markings for current and future bicycle facilities. Traffic signal warrant studies were conducted by Midtown Alliance and approved by the City of Atlanta in 2019.
