Upgrades along Atlanta Avenue, from Boulevard Avenue to Hank Aaron Drive, to optimize signal operations and communications network to ATCC. This project includes the conversion of the intersections at Hill Street and Martin Street from traffic signal control to all-way stop control. This project also includes the conversion of Atlanta Avenue from one-way operation to two-way operation between Hank Aaron Drive and Hill Street, as well as Martin Street between Atlanta Avenue and Ormond Street.
Installation of fiber on Boulevard, between Atlanta Avenue and McDonough Road. Includes the conversion of the intersection at Englewood Avenue from traffic signal control to side-street stop control, with the addition of pedestrian enhancements.
Upgrades along Cascade Road, from Childress Drive to Lawton Street, to optimize signal operations and communications network to ATCC. This project is a phase of the Cascade Road/Avenue Corridor project.
Upgrades along Dekalb Avenue/Decatur Street from Peachtree Street to Rockyford Road, to optimize signal operations and communications network to ATCC. The DeKalb Avenue/Decatur Street TCC project is part of the DeKalb Avenue Complete Street project.
Replacement of traffic signal LED’s, cabinet, controller monitor, signal wiring, communications, & timing at the intersection. The DeKalb Avenue @ Rockyford Road & DeKalb Place signal project is part of the DeKalb Avenue Complete Street project.
Installation of Fiber on JE Boone Blvd between Northside Dr (SR 3 / US 41) and Fire Station 16 as part of the Department of Watershed’s Green Infrastructure project. Includes traffic signal upgrades at Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard and James P. Brawley Drive, traffic signal installation at Temple Street / Fire Station 16, and traffic signal removal at Tazor Street, Sunset Avenue, and Vine Street.
Installation of fiber on McDaniel Road, between Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard and Whitehall Road, plus a spur up Whitehall Road to connect to the Peachtree Road system. This project includes the conversion of the intersections at Fletcher Street, Gardner Street, Mary Street, and Rockwell Street from traffic signal control to all-way stop control.
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. TravelSafely™ is looking for early adopters to participate in the “living lab” by providing feedback during beta testing. Please visit the website for more information.
To date, the North Avenue Smart Corridor project has won 4 awards:
Georgia Intelligent Transportation Society – 2017 Project of Significance Award
National Recognition Award – 2018 ACEC Academy Awards of the engineering industry
State Award Winner, Technology Systems – 2018 ACEC Georgia Engineering Excellence Awards
2018 ACEC People’s Choice Award – Voted upon by the attendees of the Georgia Engineering Excellence Awards

Installation of fiber on Sylvan Rd near SR 154/166, plus a spur up Perkerson Road to connect to the Metropolitan Parkway system. Includes the conversion of the intersections at Victory Drive and Dill Avenue from traffic signal control to all-way stop control.
The existing intersection is currently signalized and consist of a northbound bypass lane and makes it difficult for pedestrians and bicyclist to cross at the intersection. A proposed signal will be constructed at the intersection of Wieuca Road and Old Ivy Road that further enhances the operational functions of the roadway. The proposed roundabout will provide a safe route for motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists. Other safety features have been proposed to slow traffic and provide pedestrian and bicyclist safety.
This is a partnership project with the Buckhead Community Improvement District. Renew Atlanta will contribute $1M and the City of Atlanta TSPLOST will contribute $3.75M toward the total project cost.
