WHO:  Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI)

WHAT: Travel advisory for Wylie Street lane closures

WHERE: Wylie Street in Atlanta (30316) between Krog Street and Chester Avenue

WHEN: Starting Monday, August 1, 2016 for approximately six weeks from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. on weekdays

WHY: Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is constructing the southern extension of the Eastside Trail for one mile in between Irwin Street and Kirkwood Avenue. As part of construction, ABI will be relocating the existing water line under the northern side of Wylie Street to the southern side of the street.

Single lane closures will occur in stretches of 20-40 feet at a time. Flagmen will be present to direct traffic. The northern sidewalk along Wylie Street will be open during this time. On-street parking will be available outside the construction hours of 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., but will be unavailable where work is taking place during construction hours.

ABI is holding a community meeting on August 4, 2016, to update residents on the lane closures and other Eastside Trail Extension updates. Details are the calendar at
