Auburn Avenue History and Culture Project
The Auburn Avenue History and Cultural Information Transportation Enhancement (TE) project is being funded by the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District and seeks to create a consistent character along the corridor. Existing historic markers and signs along Auburn Avenue are damaged, inconsistent and uncoordinated. They lack a cohesive neighborhood identity and character.
The project area encompasses the sidewalks along Auburn Avenue between Peachtree Street and Old Wheat Street. The focus of the enhancements includes improvements to the corridor’s wayfinding and signage elements. The project will review and improve existing signs to identify relevant ‘missing’ information that will be added to the series. Existing broken, faded and missing signs will be replaced with improved historical content and cultural information.
The enhancements will also feature notable improvements to the I-75/85 bridge underpass intended to make the currently dark and unwelcoming environment more bright and engaging.
Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in the Fall of 2018 and take several months to complete.
