|Project Name||Midtown Pedestrian Mobility and Safety Improvements (Last Mile Intersections) Project|
|Project Sponsor / Borrower||Midtown Alliance|
|Value Capture Techniques||Special Assessment, Community Improvement District|
|Mode||Local Road, Pedestrian / Bicycle|
Midtown Alliance undertook its largest transportation study to date to examine district-wide mobility beginning in January 2016. This study seeks to ensure the area’s long-term vitality, reinforce transit investments, and manage vehicular traffic while simultaneously maintaining a safe environment for pedestrians and bicyclists.
In 2019, the City of Atlanta and Midtown Alliance began the design and engineering phases of the Midtown Transportation Plan. The project, funded by $1.6M in Federal grant funds and $600,000 in Midtown Improvement District funds, includes adding five new traffic signals and two pedestrian-activated signals. These will help strengthen connectivity and safety along the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) rail stations and bus stops. Plans for new crosswalks, striping improvements, and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant ramps at 24 additional intersections are also included.
After conducting warrant studies, developing plans, and completing the procurement process, the City of Atlanta and Midtown Alliance began reviewing bids for the project in April 2020. Construction is estimated to take 18 to 24 months to complete.
