CSX will be removing and replacing the wooden railroad trestle that runs between Tanyard Creek Park and Ardmore Park and over the Atlanta BeltLine Northside Trail. On February 28, the contractor, Brasfield Gorrie, will close the trail and begin work, which is expected to last through 2022. Detour signs will be posted with routes, which will include using Collier Road and Ardmore Road to navigate around the closure. Construction hours will be 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
City of Atlanta Parks Department, along with PATH Foundation, are the project leads with CSX and Brasfield Gorrie. Please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is supporting communications efforts around the trail closure.
CSX Railroad, Brasfield Gorrie, the City of Atlanta, and District 8 Councilmember Mary Norwood hosted a public community meeting on February 22 via Zoom. Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and PATH Foundation representatives were also in attendance.
The Atlanta BeltLine Race Series is set to host the Northside 3k-5k on April 23, 2022. The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and Atlanta Track Club will develop a race route with these changes in mind and will keep registrants informed.
