Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms Announces First Bike Lane Pop-up on 10th Street
Atlanta's first step towards safer streets begins with innovation and rapid implementation
ATLANTA – Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms announced Atlanta's first-ever bike lane pop-up. The City of Atlanta will partner with Midtown Alliance to install a temporary pop-up bike lane on 10th Street. This demonstration project is a first step in addressing safety as part of the Bottoms Administration's Action Plan for Safer Streets across Atlanta.
"Less than two weeks ago, we announced our Action Plan for Safer Streets," said Mayor Bottoms. "Today, we are taking action with an innovative rapid deployment to bring changes faster while allowing us to use data to measure the project's impact and success."

Starting Saturday October 19th, the City will install a one-way, westbound bike lane from Myrtle Street to Juniper Street in Midtown, connecting the ends of two existing bike facilities. This pop-up will improve connectivity in the bike network while providing a direct, safe route for people riding bikes and scooters to get from the BeltLine to Peachtree Street. The lane will be separated from traffic by a temporary protective barrier, and a combination of signage and markings will alert people to bus access points and car crossings. The installation will last for one week, ending on Saturday October 26th.
An open house session to review the plans with the community will take place this Thursday, October 10th, 2019 at Midtown Alliance offices from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The City, Midtown Alliance, and members of the community will work together to install the project and collect data on bike and scooter ridership, safety, community impacts, and car traffic. This information will help transportation officials better understand impacts of such infrastructure changes on the surrounding community. Findings will be shared as part of ongoing city-wide engagement for safer streets designs across the city.
This pop-up marks the first step towards implementing the Action Plan for Safer Streets. By the end of 2021, the City of Atlanta aims to triple its on-street protected bike network while making safety improvements to more than 20 miles of streets.
