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.
A 100% design package has been received for this segment. An Invitation to Bid is open through May 10 seeking a construction firm. The BeltLine continues to work alongside Piedmont Park Conservancy, City of Atlanta Parks Department, and Atlanta Department of Transportation. Once started, construction is expected to take approximately 18 months to complete.
