Construction Progress

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: Contractors are currently installing two new access connections to the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail 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.

The first phase of the extension is under construction! This phase will take the trail from Irwin Street / Lake Avenue to Kirkwood Avenue. Construction began in 2016 and has an estimated completion date of mid-2017. The extension will add about 1.25 miles to the popular multi-use trail. 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. The 70-unit residence was made possible by a partnership between Mercy Housing and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. Construction is now underway - check back for updates! Learn more
