University of Georgia Wins the Ted Turner Drive Resilience Corridor Challenge

The Ted Turner Drive Resilience Corridor Challenge concluded on May 7th with the Atlanta Resilience Office and Council member Amir Farokhi awarding the winners and finalists. The University of Georgia’s student team won the design challenge for their work on the “Spark” Strategy Plan, which emphasized increasing the cultural, ecological, and economic benefits of Ted Turner Drive.

This plan focuses on enhancing the pedestrian experience through green infrastructure and ecological enhancements that address heat and excess water, while also creating larger sidewalks and multi-use spaces that can be sectioned off from traffic and utilized for large events. The city will begin implementing the winning submission in the summer and fall of 2018. Learn more>>
