Northeast Trail – Segment 2 (Central / Hairpin)

Clear Creek to Buford Highway // Subarea 6

The Northeast Trail – Segment 2 will ultimately be 1.2 miles in length and run from Westminster to Mayson Street / Plasters Avenue connection. A portion of the trail between Ansley Mall and the Buford Spring Connector is open to the public. The remainder of the trail is going into construction this spring of 2022.

Project Status

Construction started in April on the southern portion of this trail build-out (Ansley to Westminster) starting at the timber bridge over Clear Creek. The unpaved trail will close in that section in mid-May. Erosion control and arborist work will be the first to take place, followed by major construction activities.

A community meeting took place to introduce the contractor, Reeves Young, to the community and discuss project details on April 13 at 6:30 p.m. Watch the meeting and download the presentation. The presentation includes photos and plan drawings with construction highlights.

This next phase of work (referred to as Northeast Trail – Segment 2, Phase II) will include the multi-use trail, landscaping, lighting and security camera package for the full 1.2 mile length of this segment.

Phase I, which included trail design and construction between Clear Creek/ Ansley Mall and the Buford Spring Connector, was executed under an agreement with Georgia Power for work within the Georgia Power Transmission line easement. It was completed in March 2021 and opened to the public in an advanced interim state.
