Open house on upcoming bike projects in Midtown
Midtown Alliance and the City are hosting a public open house on Jan 30th at 5pm to get feedback on three projects with bicycling components – Juniper St, 10th Street, and Piedmont Ave. These are exciting projects with tremendous potential and we encourage you to attend. Details from Midtown Alliance below and attached.
January 30, 2013, 5– 7p.m at 999 Peachtree Conference Center - Suite 500 Atlanta, GA 30309 (SE corner of Peachtree Street and 10th Street)
- 10th Street Two-Way Cycle Track from Monroe Drive to Charles Allen Drive – Through a partnership with the City of Atlanta, the PATH Foundation, and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., this project will create a two-way separated bike facility or “cycle track” on 10th Street between Piedmont and Monroe Avenues. The facility would serve as an extension of the BeltLine Eastside Trail, connecting cyclists to Piedmont Park, the Midtown Core and the Midtown MARTA Station as well as future bike routes on Juniper Street, Piedmont Avenue and 10th Street.
- Juniper Street from 14th Street to Ponce de Leon Avenue – Embracing the principles of Greenprint Midtown, this project proposes a one-way southbound cycle track (barrier separated bike lane) along with new sidewalks, trees, high efficiency street lighting, permanent on-street parking and green stormwater infrastructure. This project was awarded a $3.4 million construction grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission.
- Piedmont Avenue – Functionally linked to Juniper as its complementary one-way pair, Piedmont Avenue between 14th Street and Ponce de Leon Avenue is envisioned to include a one-way northbound cycle track (buffered bike lane) as well as installation of permanent on-street parking in key locations.
