US 19 (Spring Street) Bicycle and Pedestrian Improvements Project
(Peachtree St. to 17th St)
(ATLDOT Proj. No. 3000)
The Spring Street Improvements Project proposes to repurpose one southbound lane on Spring Street (US-19/SR-9) between Peachtree Road and 17th Street to accommodate wider sidewalks, ADA upgrades, street trees, pedestrian lighting, and bicycle facilities. The Spring Street corridor is one of Midtown's major southbound corridors that connects key destinations and amenities such as SCAD and the Center for Puppetry Arts. This northernmost section of Spring Street is within three blocks of the MARTA Arts Center Station and the project will help to enhance safety, access, and mobility for all users. This half-mile project is intended to complement the multi-modal components of the West Peachtree and Spring Quick Build LIT Lanes projects, which are part of the City's Action Plan for Safer Streets. See this map for reference.

Progress To Date
The Scoping phase is complete. The Design and Engineering phase began in early 2018 with Kimley-Horn serving as lead technical consultants to accomplish the following project activities:
- Public engagement
- City and stakeholder coordination
- Survey and subsurface evaluations
- Traffic impact study
- Environmental studies
- Development of preliminary and final design plans
- Cost estimating
- Utility coordination
- Development of construction documents
In early 2018, Midtown Alliance solicited public input on the project's existing conditions. An extensive traffic study concluded in December 2019. Midtown Alliance and the City of Atlanta partnered to host a public information open house in spring of 2020 to provide the public with an opportunity to learn more about the project, view preliminary designs, interact with staff and provide comments.
30%, 60% and 90% design review milestones were completed in 2020 and 2021. Final plan approvals are expected from the City of Atlanta and Georgia DOT by early 2023.
