Corridor E Design Schematics


The cross sections, plan concepts and accompanying notes provide a description for the design of the proposed facilities along
the corridor. A typical cross section has been developed for every segment of the corridor where a facility is proposed as part of
the Cycle Atlanta: Phase 1.0 Study and where projects have been programmed but the facility design has not been finalized. Cross
sections were not developed for corridor segments that already have a facility, where the facility has already been programmed
for construction or where the facility has already been designed through another project or planning effort.
The typical cross sections and plan concepts form the basis for the cost estimates presented on the previous page. Each project
consists of one or more cross section or plan concept segments. The design schematics were used to provide details about
facility design for projects, particularly where cross sections change along the corridor or intersection design is more complex.
The legend below provides a summary of the different symbols and line types used to describe existing conditions or proposed
features along the corridor.

Luckie St at North Ave/Tech Parkway and Pine St Intersection Concepts


Overview

Concept Summary

There are three main goals with this concept. One, provide a high-quality bike facility connecting
Georgia Tech and the Coca-Cola campuses to Centennial Olympic Park and PATH multi-use trails.
Two, preserve vehicular capacity and access to Coca-Cola campus. Three, develop a design that can
accommodate the proposed extension of the Atlanta Streetcar along Luckie Street.

To accomplish these goals, a two-way cycle track is proposed along the western edge of the street.
From Tech Parkway to Pine Street along Luckie, the cycle track should utilize the existing sidewalk
and streetscape between the curb and the property line. Utilizing the existing sidewalk helps
preserve a travel lane and vehicular capacity along this segment of Luckie Street. At Pine Street,the
cycle track transitions to an on-street facility.

Additionally, the intersection at North Avenue and Luckie Street/Tech Parkway is reconfigured to
accommodate the proposed changes. These changes include the conversion of one side of Tech
Parkway to a bicycle and pedestrian only greenway and the other side of Tech Parkway to a two-way
street ( one northbound lane and one southbound lane).

stations. Likewise, the City of Atlanta plans to implement a bike share system that will likely include stations at or around Centennial Olympic Park Drive.

AV
P

With all of these changes and potential connections, Centennial Olympic Park is becoming a truly urban park. The proposed reconfiguration of Baker Street P

and Centennial Olympic Park Drive includes the addition of a a two-way cycle track along the edge of the park sidewalk and on-street parking between the
P

M
cycle track and travel lanes. To accommodate the addition of the cycle track and on-street parking, two travel lanes are removed.

P

With the addition of on-street parking around the majority of the park’s edge, vehicular access to the park is improved. Additionally, the addition of the on-

A
street parking can be a source of revenue for the Centennial Olympic Park, which can be used to cover maintenance and operational costs associated with the

ST
P

park.
P

The on-street parking lanes could also be designed to change between on-street parking lanes and travel lanes. Using Intelligent Transportation System (ITS)
management, the on-street parking lanes could be temporarily changed to travel lanes to increase motor vehicle capacity of streets during major events.
When an event is finished, the travel lanes can be changed back to on-street parking lanes. P

Lastly, this concept is developed with the intent of keeping the bicycle circulation around the edge of park. Riding a bicycle through the park is currently not
allowed and this concept will help preserve the interior of the park as a pedestrian place.

The Centennial Olympic Park concept is presented in more detail on the subsequent pages of this chapter. P

Notes
1. A two-way cycle track will be constructed along Peachtree Center Avenue in 2013. The cycle track will provide a protected bikeway and alternative route option to
Peachtree Street from Ivan Allen Jr Boulevard to Edgewood Avenue.
2. Bike facilities will be installed to accommodate cyclists traveling east. Bike facilities are not installed in the westbound direction to accommodate the Atlanta Streetcar.
Additionally, streetcar tracks can often be difficult for cyclists to cross or navigate. For cyclists traveling west, they are encourage to use the westbound bike facilities along
Edgewood Avenue.

4. East of Jackson Street, the existing bike lanes will be re-striped in 2013.

Along the Atlanta Streetcar route, bike facilities will be on one side of the road and run the opposite direction of the
streetcar.

Concept Summary

The goal with this concept is to improve the ability of bicyclists to navigate this intersection as they
travel along Euclid Avenue and McLendon Avenue and to reduce bicycle-vehicle conflict points.
Along Euclid, the street is reconfigured to have a downhill shared lane for bicyclists and vehicles
and an uphill travel and bike lane. The uphill bike lane will provide cyclists traveling east dedicated
space and help them queue appropriately at the intersection.

At the intersection, the travel lanes are repositioned to create space for the eastbound bike lane
to extend all the way to the intersection. A bike box is provided for cyclists in order to give them
priority when crossing Moreland Avenue. On the other side of the intersection, shared lane
markings are applied in both directions of travel along McLendon Avenue to increase awareness of Parking is removed on north
