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.
Replacement and repair work is in progress on the existing wood bridge over Clear Creek Bridge. Work on the ramp to Piedmont Avenue continues to be a focus. Granite cladding work is starting, and retaining walls are under construction. Along the already completed portions of the concrete trail, electrical crews are also setting bases and conduit for lighting and cameras, and trees and shrubs are being installed.
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.
