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 is underway on the retaining walls under the Piedmont Avenue overpass. Concurrently, work continues on clearing, grading, retention ponds, and the construction of a utility duct bank. Replacement and repair work is underway for some of the wooden piles on the existing wood bridge over Clear Creek bridge. Work on the installation of light poles continues along the paved portion of the trail. We thank you for your patience as work crosses into the open portion of the trail at times.

A virtual community meeting was held on September 20. Download the presentation or watch the meeting recording.

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.
