Update on N. McDonough Streetscape improvements and railroad crossings
The community is invited to a workshop for updates on the N. McDonough Streetscape improvements and railroad crossing improvements at both Candler and McDonough streets. The workshop will be held Nov. 13, 6-8 p.m., in the City Commission Meeting Room, Decatur City Hall, 509 N. McDonough St.
The goals of the projects are to improve safety and accessibility for pedestrians, bi- cyclists and others using these facilities. They are based on Decatur’s 2008 Community Transportation Plan, a major goal of which is to encourage healthy lifestyles and active living in Decatur.
URS Corporation of Atlanta, a planning and engineering design firm, will help plan the projects along with Sprinkle Consulting of Lutz, Florida, a design firm that special- izes in bicycle and pedestrian planning. The projects will be funded through the Capital Improvements Bond program, grants from the Georgia Department of Transportation, the Atlanta Regional Commission and MARTA.
