West Peachtree and Spring Street Quick Build Complete Streets Projects

The image above is an example of what the bike facility on West Peachtree St and Spring St may look like as a “quick build” project. 

Project Overview

Midtown Alliance, in partnership with the City of Atlanta’s Renew/TSPLOST Program, is planning improvements to Spring Street between North Avenue and 14th Street and West Peachtree Street between North Avenue and 14th Street. In September 2019, the Mayor’s Office announced a two-year, $5M plan to bring accelerated safety redesigns to several Atlanta streets. The West Peachtree and Spring St Complete Street Projects are included in the rapid implementation strategy. Midtown Alliance has been working with the City to develop a quick build project that will improve the two corridors for people walking, biking, taking transit, and using shareable mobility devices. The revised project area map is available here. As a result of the quick build timeline, the project will:

  • Retain the existing one-way traffic operation
  • Repurpose one travel lane and several on-street parking spaces for a protected one-way bike lane
  • Re-evaluate on-street parking and loading zones
  • Spot fix the roadway where the bicycle facility will be installed

Project Timeline

In early 2019, the project team met with the public during the scoping phase. The project is now in moving to the design/engineering phase of work.  This phase of work includes additional public and stakeholder engagement, and full design documents. Design + Engineering for the quick build project work kicked-off in late 2019. This phase of the project is anticipated to last approximately 10 weeks.
