Atlanta’s Second Smart Transit Corridor Takes Shape
Traffic will eventually flow a little more smoothly down Campbellton Road in southwest Atlanta.
The eight-mile stretch from Enon Road to Lee Street is becoming Atlanta’s second “smart city corridor,” this one with a focus on transit and transportation upgrades and connectivity.
“Campbellton Road is what we are calling our Smart Transit Corridor,” said Troy Galloway, traffic manager for the Renew Atlanta program. Renew Atlanta is an infrastructure improvement initiative, funded via transportation bonding.
“We are using technologies that were proven along North Avenue and putting them into action solving issues we have in other parts of the city,” Galloway added, referring the Atlanta’s first smart city corridor, which served as a “living laboratory” to deploy and test IoT technologies.
