Safety & Security on PATH400

path400camerasDenise Starling, executive director of Livable Buckhead, gives us the dirt on PATH400 progress.

A Closer Look at PATH400…SAFETY

Safety on PATH400 has been a consideration from the start.  Let’s face it, if you don’t feel safe you aren’t going to use it – plain and simple. So PATH400 has several safety features that you may not even know are there.
 
Let’s start with the easy one. Do you always feel like somebody’s watching you? If so, you’re not paranoid! PATH400 is outfitted with state-of-the-art security cameras at all major points of entry…and those cameras are monitored in the Atlanta Police Department’s Video Integration Center. “The VIC” (as all the cool kids call it) is in the same room as the city’s 911 operators. So, should there be an incident (let’s hope not) the 911 operators can take over the cameras and see what is going on. Zone 2 can log into them and spot issues as well.

We’re Halfway There

The two newest segments – one between Sidney Marcus Dr. and Miami Circle, the other between Old Ivy Rd. and Wieuca Rd. – officially opened to the public in the waning days of 2016, although nearby residents have been enjoying these sections of the trail since concrete was poured in the late fall.
