Stay Informed About Progress Around the Atlanta BeltLine
Keep up-to-date on current construction projects around the Atlanta BeltLine. Check back for new information and to track our progress in areas that are important to you.
Note: Beginning the week of May 16, 2016, contractors will be installing two new access connections to the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail. This work will take place near mile marker 9.5 (just north of the Highland Avenue bridge). No trail closures are expected, but please proceed with caution through this area.
In partnership with Jamestown, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is building the first plaza at North Avenue on the Eastside Trail. The plaza will function as a public space immediately adjacent to the Ponce City Market development. Trail users will have a place to step off the trail and gather, with more entertainment options becoming available as shops and restaurants open in Ponce City Market. Learn more
The southern extension of the Eastside Trail will start at Irwin Street and end at Memorial Drive. The first phase of the extension will take the trail from Irwin to Kirkwood and is scheduled to begin in 2016. Construction on the second phase, from Kirkwood to Memorial Drive, replacing the bridge at Fulton Terrace, will commence when funding becomes available. Learn more
In September 2013, the City of Atlanta was awarded an $18 million TIGER V grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop the southwest corridor of the Atlanta BeltLine. This grant will cover about 40% of the project cost, expediting the trail's construction by 2-3 years. Ground was broken on November 12, 2014. Learn more
In April of 2015, ground was broken on the Atlanta BeltLine's first affordable housing units targeted toward residents aged 55 and up.
