New bicycle lanes could boost cycling around city

Six recently completed projects bring new bike lanes to several neighborhoods and could encourage more people to cycle instead of drive along key corridors in the City of Atlanta. As part of a vision to implement the city’s complete streets policy, City officials are moving forward with goals to make roadways safe for all modes of transportation, including walking, driving and cycling. 
 
The Departments of Planning and Community Development and Public Works are more than halfway through completing 11 fully funded high-priority bicycle projects as part of the City’s comprehensive bicycle plan called Cycle Atlanta Phase 1.0. From alternating bike lanes, to installing new, green bike boxes, to reducing the number of travel lanes on some roadways, these projects are designed to make cycling in Atlanta easier and safer.
