Design Manuals

City and state engineers and planners use design guidelines to determine the most appropriate roadway improvements for people on foot and bike.

  • For state roads, this includes theĀ GDOT Streetscape Design Guide.
  • Streetscape and roadway design guidelines for City of Atlanta roads are determined by existing plans, local zoning codes, and by local Community Improvement Districts (CIDs).
  • Additionally, the City of Atlanta has endorsed the NACTO Design Guides, which provide best-practice facility recommendations in an easy-to-digest online format.
