Westside Trail – Segment 4 (North Extension)

Lena Street (existing Westside Trail terminus) to Wheeler Street (tying into the BeltLine Connector Trail); Subareas 9 and 10 // Subarea 9, 10

The northern extension of the Westside Trail, also called Westside Segment 4, begins at the existing Westside Trail terminus at Lena Street and extends north to Wheeler Street where the trail will tie into PATH’s Westside BeltLine Connector (currently in design). This segment of the corridor is approximately 1.3 miles in length. The project includes the design of a 14’ wide concrete multi-use path including planting, fiber duct bank, retaining walls, vertical connections to adjoining streets, stainless steel handrails/guardrails, storm drainage and management (with a focus on green infrastructure), environmental remediation, lighting, and security cameras.
