Projects on the City of Atlanta’s 15% List to Benefit Cyclists and Pedestrians

Following the City of Atlanta’s recent announcement of the project list it plans to fund with the 15 percent of local funds from the Transportation Referendum, there are many projects in this list for bicyclists and pedestrians to be excited about.

If the referendum passes, 93 percent of Atlantans will reside within a half-mile of at least one of the 15 percent list projects or the regional projects.

As we’ve written about previously, three more sections of the Atlanta BeltLine trail system in the north and northwest would receive funding as local projects.

Here is a fuller list of Bike and Ped projects on the City of Atlanta’s 15% list:

    Notice the variety of improvements that the T-SPLOST will bring. Safer walking and biking, plus transit and traffic improvements and street-scaping
