Northeast Trail – Segment 1 (Piedmont Park)

Piedmont Park (Monroe Drive to Westminster Drive) // Subarea 6

The Northeast Trail – Segment 1 runs 0.9 miles alongside Piedmont Park from Monroe Drive to Westminster Drive. A Locally Preferred Alternative was announced in July 2021 as part of the federally funded, full length of the Northeast Trail design project from Monroe Drive north to MARTA Lindbergh Station.

Project Status

A 60% design package has been received for this segment, which runs from the northern end of the Eastside Trail to Westminster Drive.  A portion of the trail runs through Piedmont Park. ABI has reviewed the design with Piedmont Park Conservancy and City of Atlanta Parks Department, and this collaboration will continue at all stages of design. Construction is expected to bid and start in 2023.
