The bike lanes on Portman Blvd will be closed from Sunday, January 8, 2017 to Wednesday, January 18, 2017 during the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishing Market hosted by AmericasMart.
For cyclists traveling westbound, detour signage will direct cyclist to go right (north) onto Peachtree St, left (west) onto Baker St to Centennial Olympic Park Dr.
For cyclist traveling eastbound, detour signage will direct cyclists to merge into the general purpose travel lanes.
Similar to the closure precedents established around the City of Atlanta, the Portman Blvd bike lanes are subject to close a handful times throughout the year for permitted events issued at the discretion of the City of Atlanta. Closures of the bike lanes will be signed, and a detour route will be provided.
