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

Project Status

Grading has been underway along with preparations for a storm water retention pond. Installation of the fiber duct bank will start this month as well as the start of retaining walls under the Piedmont Road overpass. The short, unpaved section to the north will remain open to trail users until construction commences on that segment. Work on the installation of light poles continues along that stretch and we thank you for your patience as work crosses into the open portion of the trail at times. Construction activities are expected to last through summer 2023.

A community meeting photos and plan drawings with construction highlights in April. You can watch the meeting and download the presentation.

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.
