Bike Lanes and Paths March 8, 2013

Over the next three years, the City of Atlanta is poised to construct 34 miles of high quality bicycle routes, paths and other facilities. These projects include:

  1. New bicycle lanes along Auburn Avenue and Edgewood Avenue linking the Old Fourth Ward to Georgia State University.
  2. Georgia’s first protected one-way cycle track along Juniper Street connecting Piedmont Park to downtown Atlanta.
  3. Buffered bicycle lanes along Ponce de Leon Avenue providing a direct link from the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail and Ponce City Market to the heart of Midtown.
  4. Two-way cycle track between Centennial Olympic Park and Freedom Park.
  5. Bicycle lanes and cycle track connection between Brownwood Park and Grant Park.
  6. Direct connection between the Atlanta University Center, Castleberry Hill and downtown Atlanta.
  7. Over nine miles of shared-use path connections in northeast, northwest, southeast and southwest Atlanta connecting various business districts, parks and schools.

City planners are also working toward doubling the rate of bicycle commuting by city residents from 1.1% to 2.2% by the year 2016. City partners such as Atlanta BeltLine Inc., Atlanta Regional Commission, Georgia Department of transportation, Community Improvement Districts, the PATH Foundation and private funding partners continue to support bicycle plans city-wide.
