To their credit, the Atlanta Midtown Alliance is exploring various ways to improve safety for bicyclists in downtown Atlanta. They decided to pilot a few different planters along the 5th Street NW bike lane to evaluate them for protective qualities, durability, portability and aesthetic appeal. DezignLine is thrilled that our forklift-ready SteelGreen Planters were selected as one of the options being reviewed by the Alliance, bicyclists, pedestrians, residents and businesses in the neighborhood. The Alliance selected the popular and neutral Iron Gray color (applied over a galvanized undercoat) to blend in beautifully with the surrounding environment, and they added self-watering systems to each Planter to reduce the need for maintenance — especially as the weather warms in spring/summer.
DezignLine appreciates and applauds Atlanta Midtown Alliance’s recognition of the need for improved bicycle safety, and their efforts to pilot appropriate solutions!
