West Peachtree and Spring Street "Quick Build" Bike Lane 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, is planning improvements to Spring Street between 3rd St and 13th Street and West Peachtree Street between North Avenue and 13th 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 Street Bike Lane projects are included in the rapid implementation strategy. Midtown Alliance is working with the City to develop a quick build project that will improve the two corridors for people on bicycles and other mobility devices. The revised project area map is available here. The scope of this project includes the following:

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

Project Timeline

In early 2019, Midtown Alliance's project team began the scoping phase for more comprehensive "complete street" projects on both corridors. Following the Mayor's announcement, the project was simplified and accelerated, and Midtown kicked off the Design and Engineering phase for the quick build project in late 2019. The design phase of the project is anticipated to be completed in April 2020, and the City plans to construct the bike lanes by end of 2020.

Public Engagement

The City of Atlanta, as part of the Mayor’s Action Plan for Safer Streets, hosted a public meeting with Midtown Alliance and Central Atlanta Progress on the evening of February 3, 2020. The meeting discussed safety improvements planned within Downtown and Midtown including the West Peachtree Street and Spring Street Quick Build Complete Streets Projects -- and the Piedmont Avenue Quick Build Complete Street project (Ralph McGill Blvd to Ponce de Leon Ave) managed by Central Atlanta Progress.
