Northeast Trail – Segment 2 (Central / Hairpin)

Westminster Drive to Mayson Street // 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 to the south, between Ansley Mall and Westminster Drive, is closed for construction.

Project Status

Work to pour the concrete trails is moving forward rapidly. A final GDOT permit has been received, allowing work along the Buford-Spring Connector bridge crossing to move forward. This construction work is currently scheduled to be completed in the fall of 2023, with final landscaping to follow in late 2023 and early 2024.

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.
