Eastside Trail Concrete Takes Shape South of 10th Street and Monroe Drive
posted in Construction Updates, Eastside Trail // 05/15/12

Fresh from the Eastside Trail this morning – photos of our 14-foot-wide concrete path on the ground! Check out more photos of progress on our facebook page.

Please keep in mind that this is still an active construction site and as such is currently CLOSED TO THE PUBLIC, but we hope this teaser will whet your appetites for when the trail opens later this summer… When completed, the Eastside Trail will stretch 2.25 miles from Piedmont Park (just beyond view in the photo above), through Virginia Highland and Old Fourth Ward to Inman Park.

If the Regional Transportation Referendum passes on July 31, 2012, 10.2 miles of transit (including along the Eastside Trail) will be built within a few short years. Approximately 5 miles will be built on the Atlanta BeltLine’s east and west sides with 5 additional miles in crosstown connections and three connections to MARTA train stations.

    Very excited, but….How are the thousands of people coming off the trail going to get into Piedmont park? The rendering above doesn’t show any of the motorists that are always clogging the intersection of Monroe, 10th, and Virginia Avenue.

    As a frequent crosser at this intersection on bike & foot, it is a disaster. It will be much worse with the trail connecting lots of additional people (including myself) with easier access to the park.

    I am just hoping that there is a plan in the next 9 weeks to deal with this issue. I would hate to have to have somebody get hurt or killed trying to get into the park because there wasn’t a plan.

    Really excited for the trail, really worried about that access point.

      Doug, thanks for your comment. As part of this construction project, a new signalized crosswalk on the north side of the intersection will be installed to allow for pedestrians and cyclists to cross Monroe Dr safely.

    What’s the ETA for the trail to be navigable from Freedom Park Trail to Piedmont Park?
