Streetscape Project Transforms Marietta Street

Rooted in in the LCI-funded 2001 Atlanta City Center study, the Marietta Street and Centennial Olympic Park Drive Transportation Improvement Project is nearly complete.  The project includes sidewalk improvements, intersection safety improvements and street improvements.  The area is one of Downtown’s main visitor routes connecting the CNN Center, Georgia World Congress Center, Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke and Centennial Olympic Park to Woodruff Park, Underground Atlanta and Five Points.  Funding for the project is being provided by the Georgia Department of Transportation through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  Matching funds are being contributed by the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District.  In-kind support and coordination is being provided by the City of Atlanta.
