The Westside Trail, a 3-mile corridor in development on the Atlanta BeltLine’s southwest side, runs from University Avenue in Adair Park north to Lena Avenue at Washington Park. For a half mile along White Street, the trail will use the existing West End Trail. The project funding includes the 14-foot wide multi-use trail, 14 points of entry (11 of which will be ADA-accessible) with ramp and stair systems, greenway, and preservation for future transit.
In September 2013, the City of Atlanta was awarded an $18 million TIGER V grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to develop the southwest corridor of the Atlanta BeltLine. This grant will cover about 40% of the project cost, expediting the trail’s construction by 2-3 years.
