Please consider putting in a PROTECTED, dedicated bike lane. The cars fly on this stretch and any bicycling would be dangerous without it.

I live at 845 Spring Street. I use Spring Street daily to reach the interstate and return from it by car (office out in Kennesaw). Once home, I MARTA, cycle, and walk EVERYWHERE. I can't bike on Spring. It's a crazy road designed for autos to rule the world. Please take TWO lanes away from the cars and give them to (1) a dedicated barricaded cycle track, (2) proper sane sidewalk width that encourages pedestrians to be pedestrians. I will gladly sit in more traffic for this trade-off. What's more, the more space we take from cars, the more we make a case for mass transit. Bring the streetcar up through midtown and let's stop being car drivers to go a few blocks, shall we? :)

It is too enticing to speed here. Protected bikelanes would help, but other traffic calming features will be incredibly important as the local population increases along this corridor and more businesses, shops, and restaurant/bars pop up. The only thing keeping most people from going 45-50mph on this stretch is the poor quality of road surface (pot holes, concrete patches, steel plates) or lanes blocked due to construction. Once resurfacing is complete, nothing will stop people from going that fast unless the road is congested.

There should be a curbed lane or something to slow traffic exiting the freeway onto Stong street. Many cars take this turn too fast.

A dedicated bike lane and large, safe pedestrian sidewalk would do a lot to slow the dangerous traffic that flies down this road. The road space is poorly used and it is dangerous for people on foot or bike.

Please set back the trees at least 4 feet from the face of the curb. If not, the roots will undermine the sub-base of the road and the smaller tree planter will cause the roots to split the sidewalk. The trees will live longer and be able to supply actual shade for pedestrians. My daughter lives in MidTown and we both love the improvements made by the MidTown Alliance!!!

I am the Director of Preservation for The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation. Our headquarters, Rhodes Hall, is located at 1516 Peachtree St NW, but our parking lot is at 1495 Spring Street, under the Buford Connector overpass. Our two concerns are for visibility and safety. We welcome improvements to Spring Street, but ask that plantings or signage that may go on the sidewalk not interfere with the signage we have invested in which guests use to locate our parking lot. Secondly, we have many guests who use the lot and have to cross Spring Street to access Rhodes Hall, both during business hours and for special events which are held frequently in the evenings or on weekends. The safety of our staff (who also park in this lot), visitors and guests of special events at Rhodes Hall would greatly increase with the use of a HAWK beacon or a similar pedestrian crossing aid. Thank you for your consideration and for your efforts to improve the pedestrian experience along Spring Street.

Why not extend the project one more block to 16th Street which is the most convenient pedestrian route to the Arts Center Marta station. If you are walking south on Spring and make a left onto 17th your are actually going to opposite direction from the MARTA station.

It would be great if it got extended down to 16th street where it meets the Arts center Marta station. I know a lot of students and workers take that Marta station and the expansion to 16th would be really beneficial

Why not include 16th, which would bring the complete street one block closer to Arts Center Station and connect major residential buildings like 1280 West, AMLI Arts Center, Arts Center Tower, and 1270 Spring?

It may be worthwhile to continue this project down to 16th Street, as that would be the most direct pedestrian path along Spring Street to reach the Arts Center MARTA Station. This stretch would link up northern Midtown to the multi-family developments at 1270 Spring Street, AMLI Arts Center, 1280 West Condominiums, and the Arts Center Tower.

Why not expand the project down to 16th Street in order to connect the northern part of Midtown with the new developments between 14th and 16th. New Whole Foods, and four brand new apartment complexes in that area.

Please consider extending the enhanced safety features, access, and mobility to include 16th street. 16th street is a busy street for both pedestrians and cars. With all the new apts, there will be more foot traffic and it would be a great opportunity to provide accommodations to support the diverse neighborhood attracted by the close proximity of Marta (especially wirh wider sidewalks, ADA upgrades, & street pedestrian lighting). The benefits would be huge to our midtown living experience! Thanks for allowing input!

Would like it to extend down 16th street and have rented bikes available with wider sidewalks to encourage more foot traffic rather than Cars so more people will walk to the arts center to nearby restaurants and coffee shop encourage a healthier lifestyle and more socializing.

This is a fantastic idea but I feel it would be even better if the project extended to join the new proposed extension of 15th Street. If that's not possible until the 15th Street extension project is completed, please consider extending the project to 16th Street. This will tie in the main block surrounding the new residential developments, commercial developments and provide access to Arts Station, High Museum etc. Walking along the roadside between 17th and 16th Street is also not safe with the side-walks being uneven and there no bike-lanes. The whole of Spring Street is a gateway into Midtown and Downtown, the whole of Spring Street needs to be redeveloped to make it safe for pedestrians and cyclists and slow down mad car drivers who love racing down it.

Please include 16th St and Spring..horrible traffic corridor..I live in 1280 West and we need inprovements due to the high traffic volume. Our immediate vicinity encompasses the Arts center, Marta, resturants, comedy theaters, and other high rise condiminiums, we are a large part of this area with over 400 units in our building alone. Consideration for expansion to 16th St is a must.

MARTA is the most significant transportation feature south of Spring and Peachtree. 16th St is the best connection between Spring and MARTA. 16th could offer a cozy respite from the busy surrounding streets while serving a practical purpose.

I often walk southbound on Peachtree across Spring. Cars coming south on Peachtree Street don't stop because of the "free right" turn.

Drivers coming off the Spring/Buford Connector and heading south don't always stop for pedestrians and bicyclists. It's such a high speed geometry. Drivers need to be aware that the highway is ending and they're entering Midtown.

We are for this amazing project. However, it would make more sense to build the connect way from 15th St. for accessibility to the marta train station along with accessibility straight to the access road. This would help with traffic and safety for pediatricians going to marta with less traffic and people friendly mobility to train station.

The crosswalk at the intersection of the off-ramp of the Buford-Spring Connector and Spring Street is poorly lit and well traveled. Additional lighting and/or a flashing light to alert drivers that pedestrians are crossing could safe a life.

It would be great if the project could be expanded further. 1280 West is home to over 400 units and nearly twice as many residents. Its primary entrance is on 16th Street. Additionally, people routinely travel on 16th from the Arts Center Station to office buildings on Spring Street and to Atlantic Station. It is my understanding that 15th Street will soon be expanded to connect West Peachtree and Spring Street. Between that and the newly opened Amli Arts center and the Whole Foods being developed on 14th Street, all forms of traffic on Spring Street south of 17th Street will only continue to grow.

Please consider extending this project further south to 14th street. As others have mentioned the traffic on Spring Street is dangerous to pedestrians and bikers. With the new Whole Foods Market and a number of new apartment buildings between 14th and 17th, pedestrian traffic will increase significantly in the area. wider, safer sidewalks and a secured bike lane will significantly reduce the chance of injury to those of us in area.

i often walk from the arts centre station to atlantic station, and truly the scariest part that i feel unsafe is the walk from the arts centre station on 16th street to spring street, and spring street until i hit 17th. the road is uneven on 16th and crowded, and spring street between 16th and 17th cars are just flying. i suggest you add these roads as they are vital for access to major transit, and a major safety hazard for us living in the neighbourhood,

This is an extremely dangerous intersection for pedestrians because of the high speed free right turn for cars. I avoid walking in this area and sometimes take the bus just a few blocks to avoid having to use this crosswalk.

This whole intersection needs to be redesigned. When I lived in Midtown and would vote over at Peachtree Christian Church, I would nearly get run over every time I came this way. Perhaps changing the timing of the lights and adding new/better crosswalks could go a long way in making this a safer area.

This crossing is EXTREMELY dangerous for pedestrians as there is no light for cars to stop nor is there a call box for pedestrians to utilize when crossing. If a traffic light isn't possible (and I know it wouldn't be well received by commuters using this road), maybe make physical improvements that force cars to slow down/stop for pedestrians.

My wife and I will have lived at 1280 West (Spring @ 16th) for 20 yrs as of May 2018. We believe this project should be expanded to 14th St to accommodate the new residential/commercial high rises like ours (AMLI, Arts Ctr Tower, etc) that are being added, along with the potential MetLife Center complex and long-rumored House of Blues (on the Center Stage/Vinyl property). Spring St has the real potential, IMHO, to become a nice, new shopping and dining district supporting the surrounding area. Now, let's parlay this into bringing the ATLANTA Ballet and ATLANTA Opera back to the ATLANTA Arts District! Thank you!

Please extend the project to 14th street. This area is back side of many office parking and very dark and under utilized area. Because of the potential of extending the pedestrian walk and promote midtown art district, it would be nice to extend well lit street for more development opportunities around new residential development along with promoting more walkable area for businesses.

Yes, dedicated and protected bike lanes stretching all the way to downtown (Centennial Olympic Park as previously noted) would be a wise investment for the city. Then, in future Midtown projects these existing bike lanes could serve to spur other connecting dedicated bike lanes (i.e. east/west travel). This, in effect, would better connect the core of Midtown making it more biker friendly and less car dependent. Also, this may be a bit ambitious but an infill MARTA subway station could prove useful at Spring & Peachtree Streets. I could see it attracting ridership from the adjacent northern neighborhoods such as Brookwood and Ardmore. This could also bridge North Midtown to these South Buckhead neighborhoods along Peachtree Street, where more restaurants and bars are popping up.
