Dignitaries Break Ground for The Eastside Trail, Beltline

On October 30th, representatives from the Atlanta City Council, the Atlanta Beltline Inc., PATH Foundation and Kaiser Permanente of Georgia broke ground for one of the most talked-about developments in Atlanta, the Eastside Trail.

As a result of generous donations of private funding from the Sarah and Jim Kennedy/PATH Foundation and Kaiser Permanente, and with the support of Mayor Kasim Reed, the development Eastside Trail timeline is imminent. The groundbreaking ceremony will mark the beginning of construction on the 2.5-mile segment of trail running from DeKalb Avenue to 10th Street and Monroe Drive at the tip of Piedmont Park, which is projected to be complete in summer of 2011.

The new Eastside Trail will be a 14-foot wide concrete multi-use trail in the Atlanta BeltLine right-of-way which will connect Piedmont Park, the new Historic Fourth Ward Park which is now under construction, and the Freedom Park trail.
