Open House and Workshop: Atlanta Avenue Railroad Crossing Improvements

The community is invited to a second open house and workshop to help plan improvements to the railroad crossing at Atlanta Avenue. Ideas and concepts that were sketched out by residents in November and December have been evaluated and used to develop several preliminary plans to make the rail crossing and intersection safer for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists.

City of Decatur staff and the design team lead by Landis-Evans & Partners and Atkins will be available to explain the preliminary plans, respond to comments and suggestions and move towards a common plan for the crossing.  A community “academy” providing information about modern traffic signal design will be held continuously throughout the January 16 workshop.

Plan to drop by the Atlanta Friends Meeting, 701 West Howard Avenue, anytime during the workshop to learn about the project and share your thoughts.

SPLOST (Special Option Local Sales Tax) dollars are being used to fund these improvements.
