Spring Street Pedestrian Mobility
and Safety Improvement Project
(US-19 / Peachtree to 17th St)

Spring Street: Typical Existing Section

Project Overview

The Spring Street Improvement Project proposes to re-purpose one southbound lane on Spring Street (US-19) between Peachtree Street and 17th Street to accommodate wider sidewalks, ADA upgrades, street trees, pedestrian lighting, and bicycle facilities.This northernmost section of Spring Street is intended to be the first phase of improvements along the entire Spring Street corridor, one of Midtown's major southbound corridors that connects key destinations and amenities. This phase of the project is within three blocks of the MARTA Arts Center Station and will help to enhance safety, access, and mobility for all users. 

Project Funding

  • $1M in Midtown Improvement District funds
  • $1.9M in federal grant funds
  • Total funding: $2.9M


The Scoping phase is complete. The Design and Engineering phase began in early 2018 with Kimley-Horn serving as lead technical consultants. This phase will include:

  • Public engagement
  • City and stakeholder coordination
  • Survey and subsurface evaluations
  • Traffic impact study
  • Environmental studies
  • Development of preliminary and final design plans
  • Cost estimating
  • Development of construction documents

A thorough traffic study is currently being conducted for the project area. Once completed, project design work will continue and a public meeting to solicit input on proposed designs will be hosted. Please continue to monitor this page for project updates.

What's Next?

Design and Engineering will continue once the traffic study is approved by GDOT and, as of December 2019, the traffic study is still under review. The project team expects the Design and Engineering phase to pick up again in early 2020. Please stay tuned for project updates. If you have general comments or questions, please contact,
