PATH Connectivity Plan

Collaborative plan aims to improve walking and biking citywide

The Decatur PATH Foundation Connectivity and Implementation Plan identifies 9.2 miles of bicycle and pedestrian trail improvements in seven segments at a cost of approximately $12 million over a 10-year period. When implemented, it will provide a safe network of protected bike lanes throughout Decatur and beyond, including connections to important regional destinations such at the Atlanta BeltLine and Emory University.

The plan recommends the Commerce Drive Cycle Track as the first segment for implementation. This will provide a connection with two city-approved bicycle and pedestrian improvements, the North McDonough Streetscape Improvements and the Church Street Cycle Track (planned for 2018).

The plan was prepared by the PATH Foundation, its consultant, the Kaizen Collaborative, and a steering committee of Decatur residents and city staff.
