Northeast Trail – Segment 1 (Piedmont Park)

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

Alternatives analysis and concept validation is underway as part of federally funded trail design project from Monroe Drive to MARTA Lindbergh Station. Once a locally preferred alternate is determined for this segment, the consulting team  will ultimately deliver a locally-funded set of construction documents for the 0.9-mile project segment from Monroe Drive to Westminster Drive.

In summer 2021, ABI will install approximately 14’ of gravel on the existing rail bed of the unpaved trail from Monroe Drive to behind Ansley Mall (slightly north of the extent shown in the map below). This project is being made possible thanks to a generous contribution from the Speedwell Foundation.

Project Status

Gravel installation will begin mid-summer 2021 and is expected to take approximately 30 days.

Schedule + trail closures

  • As of early June, ABI is in the process of executing an agreement with the selected contractor
  • Trail closures are expected while the contractor is installing the gravel
  • Project updates will be posted on this page
