Freight ATL: Northwest Atlanta Industrial Area Freight Study will address freight movement, traffic operations, and related planning needs in northwest Atlanta. The study is supported by the Atlanta Regional Commission, Atlanta City Councilmember Dustin Hillis (District 9) and Invest Atlanta. Atlanta Department of City Planning is leading the study to ensure that Atlanta’s transportation system can sustain the area’s competitive industrial sector and high quality of life in the neighborhoods that support it.
THE STUDY AREA
The study area is home to growing residential neighborhoods, active commercial corridors, multiple Community Improvement Districts (CIDs) and Tax Allocation Districts (TADs), and the Northwest Atlanta Industrial Area that is designated as a “Production Conservation Area” by Atlanta City Design. This area contains over half the land zoned for industry in Atlanta, and it includes several established industrial districts, including the Atlanta Industrial Park, the northern portion of the Fulton Industrial Boulevard, the Chattahoochee Industrial District, and the Armour-Ottley Industrial District. The study will recommend ways for the area's industrial businesses and freight movement to coexist alongside other uses.
