What can I do to get a crosswalk installed?

Marked crosswalks at uncontrolled locations (locations without a stop sign or traffic signal) are sometimes requested to help delineate where pedestrians should cross. To request a crosswalk please contact Traffic Operations by submitting a Work Request, or email us at, or call us at 770-528-1600. Requests will be reviewed and evaluated based on pedestrian volumes, traffic volumes, vehicular speeds, crossing width, and sight distance. In the wrong location, a painted crosswalk can cause additional risks to pedestrians as safety studies have shown that simply adding crosswalks does not make crossings safer nor do they necessarily result in more vehicles stopping for pedestrians.
