ABOUT THE PROJECT: Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) recently purchased 13 acres of land, including the “wye,” from Norfolk Southern. The wye is made up of two inactive railroad bridges shaped like a Y that will eventually connect the northeast corridor of the Atlanta BeltLine between Rock Springs Road, NE, and Mayson Street, NE. ABI’s contractors will be performing a structural inspection to identify if any repairs are needed.
