The Atlanta Bicycle Coalition was recently awarded a grant in partnership with Georgia Tech, Midtown Alliance and the City of Atlanta to improve bike connectivity and safety at the intersection of 5th Street and West Peachtree Street. Innovations from the NACTO Urban Bikeway Design Guide will be used in this project to connect two segments of existing bike lanes along 5th Street. Partners Georgia Tech, the City of Atlanta, and the Midtown Alliance share the goals of increasing safety and accessibility while making riding an appealing transportation option on campus and throughout the city. Bikes Belong’s grant of $10,000 will fund material costs while leveraging in-kind donations of engineering and design work. Midtown Alliance and Georgia Tech’s Parking and Transportation will contribute $8,000 in matching funds. Big thanks to ABC, Midtown Alliance and the City of Atlanta’s transportation planning staff for all their hard work!
