A safe, efficient, and attractive transportation system supports continued vitality and contributes to Downtown’s character. As Downtown Atlanta plans for additional development and growth, projects are being undertaken to create the appropriate infrastructure, environment, and amenities necessary to support this expansion. The projects will also strive to enhance the transportation network to serve pedestrians, cyclists, drivers, and transit users. Projects are identified during the planning processes, through community feedback, and during the analysis of existing infrastructure. Additional priorities, as well as funding sources for projects, are constantly being identified.
Together, these improvements are transforming Downtown Atlanta into an attractive and accessible center city.
These projects have been made possible through the collaboration of public and private partners including the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District, the City of Atlanta, the PATH Foundation, the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) program, the Georgia Department of Transportation, the State Road and Tollway Authority, and the East and Westside Tax Allocation Districts.
