City planners are asking for input from the public on what an overhaul of Atlanta’s Forsyth Street could become. The redesign project aims to improve the street’s pavement conditions and transform it into “a safer, more multimodal street for all users,” officials say.

The 1.1-mile downtown thoroughfare between Memorial Drive and Peachtree Street has access to three MARTA stations, a variety of housing options, plus numerous entertainment spots and local landmarks.
