For more information, visit www.theatlantastreetcar.com or call 404-588-9800.

Construction by public and private utility companies and the Atlanta Streetcar construction contracting team continues along the Atlanta Streetcar route. Work is focused along the entire route and is permitted 24 hours a day, Monday through Saturday.  Numerous permits are approved, so additional construction work can be expected in the future, beyond those reported here.  We will do our best to communicate construction updates as more work commences along the route.

**The Downtown Navigator reports street and lane closures based on observed activity and permits that have been approved by the City of Atlanta. Although permits are approved please note that work may or may not be active in the corridor in the areas identified on the City's website above.
