Northeast Trail – Segments 3, 4, 5, 6 (North)

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

  • A virtual community meeting has been scheduled for July 15 to update on progress on the trail design and potential alignments for trail and transit around I-85 and Armor-Ottley on Segment 3 of the trail. Two options for crossing the railroad corridor have been submitted to Norfolk Southern for review, and one of the options appears to be workable from the perspective of the railroad.
  • Design work continues to progress for segments 4, 5, and 6.
