City of Atlanta, Department of Public Works Public Notice Regarding Section 106 Review For Project Juniper Street Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Fulton County, GA P.I. No. 0012587 AT-271 The City of Atlanta is issuing this public notice as a part of its responsibilities as a recipient of Federal Transit Administration ("FTA") funds, under 36 CFR Part 800, which implement Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966 ("Section 106"), as amended. Federal assistance from FTA, may be utilized to partially fund the construction of bicycle and pedestrian improvements on Juniper Street in Midtown Atlanta, from 14th Street, NE to Ponce De Leon Avenue, NE. The Juniper Street Bicycle and Pedestrian Facilities Project ("Project") in Fulton County, Georgia, will consist of new wider sidewalks, ADA upgrades, new pedestrian and roadway lighting, new street trees and pedestrian buffers, the addition of a continuous protected/buffered bike lane, enhanced transit connections, new on-street parking, traffic calming, traffic signals upgrades and roadway resurfacing. The approximate length of the Project is 1 mile. This Project is physically located within the City of Atlanta which is within Fulton County, Georgia. The above-referenced construction improvements have been determined by FTA, in consultation with the Georgia State Historic Preservation Division ("SHPO"), to have an adverse effect on an existing historic archaeological resource (portions of existing trolley track belonging to the former Atlanta Rapid Transit Streetcar route along Juniper Street built in the 1900s). Section 106 and 36 CFR Part 800 regulations require FTA, as the funding agency, to assess any potential direct or indirect effects the proposed new construction would have on identified cultural resources and to seek ways to avoid, minimize, or mitigate any adverse effects. Information related to the Project, SHPO's determination of an adverse effect may be viewed online at Midtown Alliance website at: www.midtownatl.com. Members of the public are encouraged to provide views on how the project may affect archaeological resources and ways that these effects may be avoided, minimized, or mitigated. Comments may be submitted by email to, dpwcommunications@atlantaga.gov, for a 30-day period, beginning on May 28, 2019. 5-28/2019
