A combination of multi-use trail and linear greenspace, the Eastside Trail was the first finished section of the Atlanta BeltLine trail in the old rail corridor. The Eastside Trail, which was funded by a combination of public and private philanthropic sources, runs from the tip of Piedmont Park to Reynoldstown.
As of Sunday evening, February 25, the temporarily closed portion of the Eastside Trail has reopened. We appreciate the quick response and partnership with the City’s Department of Watershed Management. Please use caution when bypassing the construction area and stay on the paved surfaces.
Construction on lighting along the Eastside Trail is underway and expected to be complete in spring 2020. Trail users can expect crews to occupy portions of the trail surface in addition to the shoulder as they work their way down the corridor. Work will take place on weekdays from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., dependent upon weather. Weekend work will only take place if necessary. Only sections of the trail between Monroe Drive and Irwin Street / Lake Avenue – not the full length – will be impacted at one time. We thank you for your patience as we make these improvements!
