SECTION OF PONCE DE LEON AVENUE WILL BE CLOSED TWO WEEKENDS IN JUNE
FOR EASTSIDE TRAIL CONSTRUCTION
June 8 – 11 (9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday)
June 15 – 18 (9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday)
Atlanta – The Eastside Trail project, now under construction, spans more than two miles from the southeast tip of Piedmont Park to Inman Park and the Old Fourth Ward neighborhoods. It is the next major component of the Atlanta BeltLine slated to open to the public. This project includes a 14-foot wide multi-use concrete trail for walking, running, biking and skating, as well as a significant amount of underground infrastructure to accommodate current and future utilities. It also includes retaining walls, landscaping and the preservation of right of way for the transit system which will be built in the future. The Eastside Trail is the first part of the trail system to be built within the old rail corridor, which will eventually connect 45 neighborhoods.
The section of road between Ponce de Leon Place and the Midtown Place Shopping Center (across from Ponce City Market) will be closed from June 8 through 11 and again from June 15 through June 18, 2012. The weekend of June 22 through 25 has been identified as a back-up weekend should inclement weather warrant.
During the first weekend (June 8 – 10) crews will disassemble the scaffolding that has allowed workers to safely remove lead-based paint and make structural repairs to the bridge over the past two months. The bridge will be lowered to its final elevation during the week of June 11-15. During the second week, the contractor will pour the concrete trail and complete touch-up repairs.
All vehicular access points to the shops at Midtown Place, the Kroger shopping center, Ponce Place and Ford Factory Lofts will be open and accessible during this road closure!
The closures will start at 9 p.m. on Friday evening and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday morning. Road signs will be in place for the two weeks leading up to the closures to alert drivers on Ponce de Leon Avenue. Sidewalks will periodically be closed to pedestrian traffic as work requires underneath the bridge.
Detour: Detour signs and off duty-police officers will be provided to direct motorists.
Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. appreciates the public’s patience and understanding while work continues on this transformative project.
