ABOUT THE PROJECT: The Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail is divided into four segments for design and construction purposes. Segments 3 and 4 are a part of the main Atlanta BeltLine trail corridor, connecting three miles between Washington Park at the southern end to Huff Road on the northern end. It will provide enhanced opportunities to connect to trails and parks, such as Westside Park, Maddox Park, and the Proctor Creek Greenway, along with the Bankhead MARTA station. It will also connect the neighborhoods of Washington Park, Mozley Park, Hunter Hills, Bankhead / Historic Westin Heights, Grove Park, Knight Park, and Howell Station.
The 14-foot wide trail will include landscaping, a fiber duct bank, retaining walls, pedestrian connections to adjacent streets, intersection improvements storm management, soil remediation, lighting, and security cameras.
Recent updates on all Atlanta BeltLine design and construction projects are available at www.beltline.org/projects.
Meeting materials and opportunities for public feedback will be made available on the day of the meeting at beltline.org/meetings.
