Public meeting held on downtown Atlanta bike lane project



ATLANTA, Ga. - The public has a chance to weigh in on the city of Atlanta's plans to build a cycle track for bicyclists downtown.

An open house meeting will be held Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Peachtree Center Mall near the Guest Services kiosk.

City officials said the separated bicycle lane is being built along Peachtree Center Avenue between Peachtree Street and Edgewood Avenue to provide a safe and convenient north-south cycling route through the heart of downtown.

Channel 2's Jeff Dore checked out the cycle track the city of Atlanta installed earlier this month along 10th Street.
