The MCP Foundation was established in 2018 with the vision to create “A more equitable, sustainable, and multi-purpose future where Midtown meets the Connector.” The work of the MCP Foundation was to tackle three key challenges arising from the Connector in Midtown – traffic and safety, access and mobility, and greenspace and the environment.
The Midtown Connector Transportation Improvement Project (MCTIP) would create a deck over the Connector, spanning from North Avenue to 10th Street, combining vertically integrated transportation fixes with public gathering spaces, enhanced roads and connectivity, improving mobility in Midtown and transforming life in the region for generations to come.
The Project would restore the transportation network to alleviate traffic and congestion, making the area safer. It would create a bustling urban greenspace while responsibly tackling environmental and equity issues in our community, and bringing the vibrant Midtown neighborhood back together.
The MCP Foundation has completed its three-year feasibility study and the project is now deemed “shovel worthy.” It’s time for the next generation of government, business and philanthropic leadership to bring this vision to life, a vision that will achieve mobility for all and create a greener heart for Atlanta.
