Edgewood Avenue Bridge
Edgewood Avenue Bridge Replacement Project
In April 2013, the Atlanta BeltLine began work in conjunction with the City of Atlanta to replace the Edgewood Avenue bridge where it crosses over the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail. With the bridge complete, construction will proceed on the Eastside Trail from its current terminus at Lake Avenue / Irwin Street south to DeKalb Avenue in 2015.
The new bridge along Edgewood Avenue improves pedestrian conditions and creates pedestrian connections to the Atlanta BeltLine. Based on age and required repairs, it was more cost effective to replace the Edgewood Avenue bridge rather than repair it.
Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. selected C.W. Matthews as the prime contractor and URS as the designer for the project. Through the fall of 2012, the CWM / URS team worked on design and utility coordination. This project is funded by Recovery Zone Economic Development Bonds, with a total project cost of $4.5 million. Construction began in April 2013 and was completed, including the vertical ramp and stairs connections, in late summer 2014.
