Streetcar East Extension Project: Irwin Street Traffic Study

Irwin Street/Lake Avenue at the BeltLine between Krog Street and Auburn Avenue/Sampson Street will be closed to vehicular traffic November 7 to 13, 2022. The City of Atlanta’s Department of Transportation (ATLDOT) and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) will conduct a traffic study during the 667 Auburn development closure to evaluate impacts to surrounding neighborhoods and businesses for the Streetcar East Extension project. BeltLine access will remain open throughout the week. During the utility work, sidewalk on the north side of the Irwin Street (in front of Jake’s Ice Cream) will remain open to ensure BeltLine access. 

Detours: If traveling west on Lake Ave/Irwin St: • Turn left on Krog St • Turn right on Edgewood Ave • Turn right on Randolph St • Turn left on Irwin St If traveling east on Irwin St: • Turn right on Randolph St • Turn left on Edgewood Ave • Turn left on Krog St • Turn right on Irwin St/Lake Ave If traveling south on Sampson St towards Irwin St/Lake Ave: • Take a slight right on Auburn Ave • Take a slight left on Randolph St • Turn left on Edgewood Ave • Turn left on Krog St • Turn right on Irwin St/Lake Ave

The study will allow the project team to collect traffic data to inform design decisions for the Streetcar East Extension project. It will also allow the community to provide feedback on the road closure. To provide your feedback, please take the survey at www.streetcareast.com when the closure begins.

Led by MARTA, in coordination with ABI and the City of Atlanta, the Streetcar East Extension project is the first expansion of Atlanta’s existing downtown Streetcar, which opened in late 2014. This project runs along Edgewood Avenue to the Atlanta BeltLine at Irwin Street and up the Eastside Trail corridor to Ponce de Leon Avenue.

 

When: Monday, November 7 – Sunday, November 13, 2022

Why: The study allows the project team to collect trip data to inform design decisions. It also allows the community to provide feedback on the permanent closure of Irwin Street at the BeltLine.
