Westside – Connector Trail + BeltLine Trail Segment 3 (Marietta Blvd)

PATH Trail that will connect downtown Atlanta to the Westside Beltline // Subarea 10

The Westside BeltLine Connector is a PATH Trail that will connect downtown Atlanta to the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside Trail Segment 3 and Segment 4. This 2.9-mile trail will be completed in three segments as a joint venture between the PATH Foundation and Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI).  The BeltLine used $5.1M in TSPLOST funding to acquire the corridor in 2019.  PATH and ABI are sharing the cost of construction which represents a $9.2M investment. The Westside BeltLine Connector opened in March 2021.

The City of Atlanta’s Brownfield Program sponsored Phase II Environmental Site Assessment in support of the Westside BeltLine Connector for a total cost of approximately $100,000.
