"The painted bike-lane project, a combined effort between Georgia Tech, the Midtown Alliance, the Atlanta Bicycle Coalition (ABC), and the city's Transportation Planning division, is aimed to help bicyclists cross busy West Peachtree Street while pedaling along 5th Street... According to the ABC, it includes two bike ramps and a "Copenhagen Left." The initiative cost $34,000, a relatively inexpensive amount when compared to other initiatives," writes Creative Loafing's Thomas Wheatley.
