Renew Atlanta Projects
ADA and Sidewalks
ADA and Sidewalks In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the City of Atlanta is building accessible ramps into sidewalks when we complete road resurfacing or other sidewalk repair projects.
Complete Streets Complete Streets are streets for everyone. They are designed and operated to enable safe access for all users, including pedestrians, bicyclists, motorists and transit riders of all ages and abilities. Complete Streets make it easy to cross the street, walk to shops, and bicycle to work.
There is no singular design prescription for Complete Streets; each one is unique and responds to its community context. A complete street may include: sidewalks, bike lanes (or wide paved shoulders), special bus lanes, comfortable and accessible public transportation stops, frequent and safe crossing opportunities, median islands, accessible pedestrian signals, curb extensions, narrower travel lanes, roundabouts, and more.
Bridges High-priority bridges are being replaced throughout the City of Atlanta.
Roadways Roadway projects are part of our efforts to preserve and maintain our roads throughout the City of Atlanta. These projects encompass milling, resurfacing, ADA ramp construction, curb and sidewalk repairs.
School Zone Beacons School zone beacons have been installed or upgraded at school zone crossings throughout the city. All Renew Atlanta School Zone Beacon projects have been completed!
