The project scope includes upgrades along North Avenue from Freedom Parkway to Northside Drive to optimize signal operations and communications network to ATCC. Funded by the Renew Atlanta Infrastructure Bond, the North Avenue Smart Corridor will be the most connected corridor in the state of Georgia, serving as a living lab for active, multi-modal traffic management through technology deployment and data analytics. Smart technology solutions along the North Avenue corridor will improve roadway and public safety, mobility, and the environment.
The City of Atlanta hosted a launch celebration for the TravelSafely™
smartphone application on December 20, 2017
