5th Street Complete Street Project
(ATLDOT Proj. No. 1000)
As a key east-west corridor connecting Georgia Tech, the Midtown Improvement District, and the Midtown Garden District, 5th Street is one of the most popular multi-modal streets in Atlanta. Despite its many users, the existing street and sidewalk conditions on this major connector vary in quality and character affecting user safety and experience. Current and anticipated future development along the corridor is expected to increase activity of all user groups, necessitating vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle improvements consistent with streetscape environments currently found throughout much of the Midtown Improvement District. Proposed enhancements to the 5th Street corridor between Williams Street and Myrtle Street (roughly 0.5 miles) including a new traffic signal at Williams St:
Upgrade existing bike lanes and signage.
Replacement of damaged sidewalks and curbing.
Additional/upgraded ADA ramps and crosswalks at intersections.
