Building off Midtown Alliance and the City of Atlanta’s effort to create safe intersection crossings for people walking, biking, taking transit, driving, and using shareable mobility devices, this project will install three (3) new traffic signals at the following unsignalized intersections:
West Peachtree St and 13th Street
Peachtree Street and 13th Street
Juniper Street and 13th Street
The project scope includes new traffic signal equipment, mast arms and poles, ADA compliant ramps and crosswalks, as well as appropriate signage and lane markings for current and future bicycle facilities. Traffic signal warrant studies were conducted by Midtown Alliance and approved by the City of Atlanta in 2019.
City of Atlanta transportation impact fees
Midtown Improvement District funds
Midtown Alliance awarded the project construction contract in February 2023. Pre-construction activities (permitting, shop drawings, subcontracting, material purchasing, utility coordination and field layout) were conducted through spring and summer 2023. More recently the contractor began underground investigations and installation of new foundations for the associated traffic signal poles at Juniper St, Peachtree St and West Peachtree St.
Planned Work Activity - Two-week Lookahead as of Feb. 12, 2024 (weather permitting)
The Contractor will complete the mast arm installation at the Peachtree Street intersection on the first available workday for the week of 2/12/24 and will pull wires the remainder of the week. Once the wires are pulled, BBH will then begin building out the signal cabinets and installing the pedestrian signal poles the week of 2/19/24.
The construction duration is estimated at 12 months.
