During the informal, drop-by session the project planners and design team will share conceptual designs and receive the public’s feedback regarding the cycle track. The Downtown cycle track will convert the westernmost northbound lane on Peachtree Center Avenue to a two-way, 8-foot-wide cycle track with 2-foot minimum buffer delineated by thermoplastic striping, flexible plastic bollards, and durable green pavement markings in conflict zones. On-street parking and/or formal loading zones will be provided along the east side of Peachtree Center Avenue.
The planned bike facility is funded by the City of Atlanta to help achieve the goal to make Atlanta a Top Ten U.S. Cycling city. This cycle track will connect to other facilities planned in Downtown on Peachtree Street, John Portman Boulevard, Edgewood Avenue and Auburn Avenue, as well as a citywide network proposed by the CycleAtlanta plan.
