5th Street bike lane connector project: ribbon cutting Friday October 12 at noon

UPDATE from Georgia Tech bicycle planner and ABC Board member Aaron Fowler: 

As you may have seen, construction of the bicycle infrastructure project at 5th St. & West Peachtree is underway! Midtown Alliance's contractor started construction last week and has completed most of the major pieces, including the two bike ramps and the "Copenhagen Left."


On Friday, October 12 at noon, the City of Atlanta is holding a ribbon cutting ceremony -- with Mayor Reed slated to give remarks!

Let's pack the house with bicyclists to demonstrate to the Mayor and the City the support for more, high quality bicycle infrastructure improvement projects like this one in the City of Atlanta! 

Where: Plaza at 5th and West Peachtree. Ride your bike if you can, and Georgia Tech will also have bikes available for those who want to test it out. The ribbon cutting will be followed by a ceremonial ride to City Hall, where the city's first Bike Expo will take place from 1-3 pm. 

Feel free to share this invitation with friends and co-workers. Big thanks to Midtown Alliance for being the major financial contributor on this and letting us use their contractor. Click here to read more about the project.
