The following standards guide and inform the design and construction of all transportation elements within Chattanooga:


Transforming public places

Chattanooga's Transportation Department is accepting applications to transform public rights-of-way such as sidewalks, on-street parking spaces, travel lanes, and full street widths into active, inviting streets.  Pedestrian-centered projects expand public spaces, calm traffic, and increase safety for people who walk, bike, and take transit. They also encourage walking and bicycling, build a sense of community, and increase foot traffic for local businesses.  Organizations and business owners can use this form for a Transportation Department review of enhancement projects in the City right-of-way.  Applicants will need to identify an appropriate site, show neighborhood support for the project, raise funds required for materials and installation, and provide long-term management, maintenance, and operations of the project.  Transportation Department staff will work with the applicant to create a plan that can be presented to City Council for final approval.

Possible projects to bring your community to life:

Bicycle Corrals - repurposing an on-street parking space with bicycle racks—enough space for 10 bicycles to lock up in place of one car.


Parklets - small spaces that expand the sidewalk into parking spaces or travel lanes to provide amenities and green space.


Pedestrian Plaza - creates accessible pedestrian zone in a commercial area by closing a street to most automobile traffic. Emergency vehicles have access at all times and delivery vehicles are restricted.
