Groundbreaking for Atlanta BeltLine’s Southside Trail is Jan. 22

The Atlanta BeltLine will host a ground breaking ceremony on Jan. 22 at 11 a.m. for the first phase of the four-mile Southside Trail.

Dubbed Southside Trail-West, construction on the 0.75-mile portion of the corridor will  extend from the Westside Trail to Pittsburgh Yards on University Avenue.

BeltLine CEO Clyde Higgs said in a blog post that “Southside Trail-West was selected as the first segment in a phased approach to construction because of its connection between four emerging job centers—Pittsburgh Yards, Murphy Crossing, and Lee + White and the Metropolitan.”

The groundbreaking ceremony will take place at the intersection of the Westside Trail and the Southside Trail just off Allene Avenue. (GPS Coordinates: 33.721365, -84.410983). Guests are encouraged to wear sturdy shoes since the interim trail is unpaved.

This location is accessible via MARTA bus #95 and #79. Please consider biking, walking, or using rideshare. Parking is available at The Bakery: 825 Warner Street, 30310. Limited street parking is available.
