Westside Trail Groundbreaking

November 12, 2014 @ 12:30 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Mayor Kasim Reed, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership invite you to the groundbreaking of the Westside Trail.

Join the Atlanta BeltLine for a celebration as they break ground on the next significant milestone: the Westside Trail. The ceremony will take place on the Westside Trail where it intersects Allene Avenue (between Catherine Street and the Urban Farm) in historic Adair Park.

The ceremony site is accessible from the West End and Oakland City MARTA stations on the red / gold lines. From the West End station, take the 95 bus down Metropolitan. From the Oakland City station, take the 193 bus to Sylvan Road.

Biking and walking to the ceremony is encouraged and is an opportunity to use the interim hiking trail before it goes into construction. Bike racks will be available for locking up your bike at the event. Riding a bike in the corridor requires a suitable all-terrain bike.

On-street parking is available on Allene Avenue, Catherine Street, and Lexington Avenue. For navigation purposes, enter 1076 Allene Avenue SW, Atlanta, GA 30310.

The Westside Trail is a three-mile multi-use trail that will connect Washington Park in the north to Adair Park in the south with connectivity to multiple neighborhoods in between. This historic investment in southwest Atlanta will create a bicycle-and pedestrian-safe corridor with connections to four schools, four parks, and the future Urban Farm. It will stitch together economic nodes via shared-use trails, trailheads, and access points all while preserving the corridor for future streetcar transit. The design includes lighting, cameras, and ADA-accessible entry points. Visit our Westside Trail construction page for more information.

The Westside Trail is made possible through a U.S. DOT TIGER V grant of $18 million, a local match from the Georgia Department of Transportation for $9.5 million, funding from the Atlanta Regional Commission’s Transportation Improvement Plan, and the generous support of the following:
