Car-Centric Atlanta Remakes Roads For Bikes, Pedestrians

Atlanta is a car city. That’s how the roads are built. Transit is limited. There hasn’t been a strong network of paths for day-to-day cycling. Things are spread out. But voters have approved spending on changing the city’s transportation infrastructure in a bond package last year and a sales tax last week. Now big changes are coming to some of Atlanta’s major roads, in the form of an urban planning idea called complete streets.
