$3.1 million will be spent over the next two years on an effort to improve streets in Downtown Atlanta and make the city’s heart more pedestrian friendly. Projects include in-ground sidewalk planters along curbs to dissuade walkers from crossing in the middle of streets, more mid-block traffic signals that can be activated by pedestrians, realigning some streets and more greenery to keep people away from curbs. Downtown business leaders, hospitality officials, the state and Georgia State University are all contributed funds to the effort.
