Under Construction

Please note that as of February 17, 2020, the western segment of the Southside Trail is officially closed for construction. You can view frequently asked questions about construction here (with a detailed map!). Thank you for your patience as we construct another portion of your Atlanta BeltLine!

On June 22, the City of Atlanta closed down United Avenue where it passes under the Southside Trail. On June 29, ABI will close down the Southside Trail for removal of the old railroad bridge over the street. Click here for full details and detour maps.

From June through August, construction crews will be pile driving along Metropolitan Avenue in preparation for the new pedestrian bridge that will be built above as part of the Southside Trail. Thank you to neighbors for your patience with construction noise during the day!

Southside Trail

Strengthening Connections on Atlanta's Southside

Currently, the Southside Interim Trail is open as an unpaved, interim trail, providing connectivity between the paved Eastside and Westside Trails. Plans to build out the Southside Trail are moving forward, with the first phase of construction efforts focused on the portion extending from the southern end of the Westside Trail eastward toward the Connector.


This trail is open in its interim state, with greenspace close-by within the corridor. D.H. Stanton is an 8-acre park featuring a splash pad, playground and baseball diamond. Boulevard Crossing is a 5-acre park with multi-use activity fields.

Shop & Dine

Many restaurant and retail options are situated nearby, including The Beacon Atlanta and Glenwood Park.


The Southside Trail passes just south of Grant Park and Zoo Atlanta.


Phase I of the Pittsburgh Yards development includes the adaptive reuse of an existing 61,000 sf structure into a commercial village of small businesses and multi-purpose greenspace for youth soccer and community activation.
