MERJE (West Chester, Pa.) is leading the multi-disciplinary team developing an extensive wayfinding program for Atlanta's BeltLine, the 22-mile historic railroad trailway that will connect downtown to 44 neighborhoods and provide a network of public parks and multi-use spaces.
The team, which also includes pedestrian and bicycling safety transportation planning consultants Toole Design Group, will communicate key information to pedestrians, cyclists, and transit users. The wayfinding program will examine the issues around identity, resolving auto/pedestrian/cyclist conflicts, temporary infomation, emergency services, and sponsorship recognition
The Wayfinding Master Plan for the Atlanta BeltLine considers all wayfinding tools including technology, maps, signage, placemaking landmarks, landscaping, and lighting. Prototype areas are planned for 2015, with roll-out continuing in 2016.
