In September, Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced a two-year, $5 million plan to bring accelerated safety redesigns to Atlanta’s streets, identifying more than 20 city corridors for rapid implementation changes to improve safety for people who walk, drive, take transit or ride a bike or e-scooter.

The Action Plan for Safer Streets launched with a Pop-Up Bike Lane on 10th Street that ran from October 19th through October 26th. During the Pop-Up Bike Lane, the City collected data to monitor safety, utilization, and traffic operations.  The results are available:

Through the Action Plan for Safer Streets, Atlanta will more than triple its on-street protected bike network. By the end of 2021, Atlantans will see more than 20 miles of safer streets. You can see the full target network here.

The City of Atlanta is working on designing the first batch of these rapid implementation changes and is seeking public feedback on several corridors.

Public feedback will consist of a combination of surveys and public meetings depending on the scope, project status, funding source, and schedule.

Your perspective is important to help guide our process and create a transportation system that works for everyone.

Project updates by corridor are included below. For all projects, send any questions or comments via email to mobility@atlantaga.gov.
