The City of Atlanta Street Light Shop and Transportation Communication Center (TCC), both a part of the Atlanta Department of Transportation (ATLDOT), manage all issues related to flashing signals.
Street lights on metal poles and decorative street lamps in some instances belong to the City. Street lights on wood poles belong to Georgia Power. Residents may report outages or other street light concerns related to City owned street lights to ATL311.
Signs and Markings
Transportation Infrastructure & Management (TIM) maintains roughly 100,000 traffic and street name signs and installs new signs to accommodate changes in traffic operations as needed.
Right of Way
We issue various permits for working in or blocking the public right-of-way. Examples of such work may include installing or making repairs to a driveway apron or sidewalk; building a structure that requires a driveway apron; or tapping into an existing sewer/sanitary line.
