Construction crews will install security fencing and officially close the western portion of the BeltLine’s Southside Trail beginning on Feb. 17, 2020, in order to begin early construction activities on the trail nearest the Capitol View, Pittsburgh, and Adair Park neighborhoods.
The interim trail will be closed at the paved southern terminus of the Westside Trail, the concrete access point at University Avenue, the stairs at Metropolitan Avenue, and west of the stairs at Pryor Road.
The closure will extend between University Avenue and Pryor Road.
The 0.75-mile segment, called Southside Trail-West, will remain closed while Astra Group Inc. builds out the multi-use trail.
Work will include a 14-foot-wide concrete trail; gravel path at Allene Avenue; a new pedestrian bridge, an ADA-accessible ramp, and pedestrian signal and crosswalk at Metropolitan Parkway; lights and security cameras; utility relocations, environmental remediation of the corridor; stormwater infrastructure; granite retaining walls; and full landscaping.
A groundbreaking ceremony was held on January 22, 2020, marking the first time in Atlanta BeltLine’s history, three segments are under construction concurrently.
It will take approximately 12 months to complete the Southside Trail-West.
