Campbellton Road to be developed into a Street Smart Corridor

ATLANTA – Atlanta City Councilmember Keisha Lance Bottoms is pleased to announce a partnership project with the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) to convert Campbellton Road into a Street Smart Corridor from Lee Street to the western city limits of Atlanta.

The project scope consists of resurfacing; operational and safety improvements; pedestrian amenities; streetscaping; ADA compliance sidewalks; drainage improvements and signalization technology upgrades. In addition, coordination with planned MARTA improvements in the corridor will be included. The $18.2 million project includes $12 million from GDOT. The City of Atlanta has committed $4.2 million matching funding for this project from the special purpose local option sales tax for transportation (TSPLOST). The project design stage will begin in 2018.

“The goal is to have the Campbellton Road corridor be amongst the most connected corridors in Georgia, including technology that will be used for multimodal traffic control and road safety,” Councilmember Bottoms said.

Campbellton Road is one of the longest and most highly traveled thoroughfares in Atlanta.
