Northeast Trail (North)- Segment 3 and Connector Trails

Buford Highway to MARTA Lindbergh Station // Subarea 6, 7

This project will design, bid out, and build 2.4-miles of mainline trail from Buford Highway to MARTA Lindbergh Station. It will include a connection with the PATH400 trail and access points from public streets. The project will involve crossings of existing MARTA heavy rail, NSR freight rail, CSX freight rail, GDOT freeway, and Peachtree Creek.

Project Status

Due to the complexity of the corridor in this section, it has been divided up into mainline trail and corresponding connecting trails (Connectors 1, 2, 3, and 4). A 60% design package is under review by the ABI team.  ABI is coordinating engineering reviews required for a bridge crossing over the CSX railroad.  Investigative work to identify the location of a sewer main line will be in progress soon, as well as geotechnical boring work for future bridge structures.
