Renew Atlanta Projects
ADA and Sidewalks
ADA and Sidewalks In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the City of Atlanta builds accessible ramps into sidewalks when completing road resurfacing or other sidewalk repairs.
Bridges High-priority bridges will be repaired and replaced. For other bridges, the City will perform preventative maintenance activities such as cleaning, painting and joint sealing at other locations.
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.
Roadways Roadways in the City of Atlanta will be resurfaced, which means replacing existing pavement on major streets leading to employment centers, commercial districts, shopping destinations, transit, government centers, entertainment districts, hospitals, parks and other common use areas. Roadway projects include curb repairs, ADA ramp construction, sidewalk and sign repairs.
School Zone Beacons School zone beacons will be installed or upgraded at school zone crossings throughout the city.
Traffic Signals Traffic signals will be optimized along major thoroughfares and linked to the Atlanta Traffic Control Center (ATCC). Traffic signal upgrades include replacing traffic signal lights, equipment and communication systems.
