Midtown Atlanta Regional Activity Center - Pedestrian Mobility and Safety Improvements
(Last Mile Intersections Project)

(ATLDOT Proj. No. 3011)


Project Overview

The City of Atlanta Department of Transportation and Midtown Alliance are working to install new traffic signals at five unsignalized intersections and enhance pedestrian crossings at two other Midtown locations as identified through project scoping and the Midtown Transportation Plan. The project will enhance connectivity and safety for people accessing MARTA rail stations and regional and local bus stops. During the preliminary design phase, warrant studies were conducted for the proposed new signals, and plans were developed to restripe crosswalks and install ADA improvements at 12 additional intersections within the Midtown core between North Ave and 17th Street to increase visibility of pedestrian crossings. 

Current Funding Sources

  • Federal Transit Administration grant
  • Midtown Improvement District funds
