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

Construction Updates

Midtown Alliance awarded the construction contract in February 2023 to install 5 new traffic signals, 2 pedestrian actuated signals, and other pedestrian safety improvements at 12 more intersections in Midtown.  Pre-construction activities (permitting, shop drawings, subcontracting, material purchasing, utility coordination and field layout) were conducted through spring and summer 2023. More recently, four traffic signals have become fully operational:

  • Spring Street & Peachtree Place
  • Spring Street & 4th Street
  • Spring Street & 3rd Street
  • West Peachtree Street & 4th Street

Planned Work Activity - June 2024

Three remaining signals will be installed and activated:

  • Piedmont Ave & 13th Street - full traffic signal
  • Piedmont Ave & 15th Street - pedestrian activated signal
  • Peachtree Street pedestrian activated beacon midblock between 14th and 15th at Colony Square
