Could Peachtree Road in Brookwood get bike lanes? Find out all about it Dec.10th!

You're invited to a Public Information Open House to learn more about proposed changes to Peachtree Rd aimed at improving safety and traffic flow and offer us your guidance and opinions on what makes the most sense for your neighborhood.  Representatives of the Peachtree Road Task Force from the Buckhead CID, City of Atlanta, Georgia Department of Transportation and Midtown Alliance invite you to help us make Peachtree Road safer for everyone.

Where: Shepherd Center, Woodruff Plaza, 2020 Peachtree Road NW Atlanta, GA 30309-1465

No stopping, standing, or PARKING in the bike lane

People are continuing to park in the bike lane on Edgewood Avenue, despite the signs and enforcement efforts. 

This creates a safety hazard for people on bikes, who are forced to jut out into traffic to go around the parked vehicles. Often there are available spaces across the street or nearby.

That's why we're launching a campaign to sweep the Edgewood Avenue bike lane clean of all barriers, especially cars.

As we strive to be a truly livable community with complete streets that serve so many different needs, flagrant violations of the rules of the road must be addressed. [And please remember, just because you're on a bike does not make you exempt - be part of the solution by obeying all traffic signals. Every time you run a red light it aggravates driver animosity and makes us all a little less safe.]

Please email us if you'd like to be part of a reasonable, constructive approach to this problem. 

The Unlikely Relationship Between Bicycles and Real Estate in Atlanta

Local real estate agent with Redfin says the cultural shift driving the movement to create a walkable, bikeable urban environment in Atlanta is the same one that’s behind the wheel of the rebounding housing market in Intown Atlanta.

Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 study

We're very excited to share the Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 study with you. Building on the city's 2008 comprehensive transportation plan (Connect Atlanta), the study's goal is to build a network of connected, high-quality bikeway in the core of the city. The focus is on five corridors that extend from the Atlanta BeltLine into the center of the city. Our top priority is getting bike lanes on Peachtree Street in Midtown. 

Check out the details:
