Southside Trail – Segment 1, also called Southside Trail West, is the first of five segments of the Southside Trail to undergo construction in a phased approach. 0.8-mile long, it runs from the southern terminus of the Westside Trail at University Avenue to the Annie E. Casey Foundation site at Pittsburgh Yards, just west of the I-75/85 overpass. The paved multi-use trail opened on September 9, 2021.
In addition to the 14-foot-wide concrete trail, construction included ADA access at Allene Avenue and Metropolitan Parkway with appropriate crosswalks and signalization; ADA access at Pittsburgh Yards and to Capital View Manor; a new pedestrian bridge over Metropolitan Parkway; environmental remediation of the corridor; lights; security cameras; stainless steel handrails; utility relocations; storm water drainage; retention walls; and full landscaping. The corridor connects three open and emerging job centers – Pittsburgh Yards, Murphy Crossing, and Lee + White.
- Upcoming Activities:
- Lighting and security cameras on connecting paths to Allene Avenue and Manford Avenue
- Landscaping to be installed by Trees Atlanta through the fall
