The DIRT – Construction Update

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

Instead of reading tea leaves for this report, I opted to look to the stars and found inspiration:  

“2017 is a year wide open with opportunities for Sagittarians. There is plenty of energy that will prompt you to dig in and make tremendous progress.”   

Yep – that is my horoscope for 2017, so you are going to see some great progress coming…just not yet as we still get all of the I’s dotted and T’s crossed to transfer the easement for the land from MARTA to the City of Atlanta so we can start building more trail. Any week now it should be done and we should be able to charge ahead…keep your fingers crossed, old ivy parkingsend us good vibes – whatever floats your boat.  

On a more definitive note – the geotech work (soil testing) has officially begun so we can make any necessary design changes and get to building!  Baby steps…

Parking

One of the main questions I always get is “I want to go check out PATH400 – where can I park to get on it?” Well the obvious answer is that you should walk or bike to get there since you are most likely exercising, but if you live too far away for those options to make sense, you will soon have another option besides parking at the Prominence Building on the Buckhead Loop. Crews are getting started this week adding eight new on-street parking spaces underneath the GA 400 highway bridge that crosses over Old Ivy Road. If you need a physical address to find it, use 519 Old Ivy Road. The cool thing is that these spaces serve both PATH400 and Old Ivy Park.
