A senior civil engineer for the Atlanta Beltline says the character of the famed Krog Street Tunnel will be preserved as upgrades are implemented to allow the multi-use trail to pass through. Eventual plans call for a more permanent passageway to Cabbagetown (circumventing the huge CSX Hulsey rail yard). Quoth the engineer: "We'll be adding new handrails to the elevated pedestrian paths that run down both sides (of the Krog Tunnel) and the city will be repaving the roadway inside the tunnel ... We also plan to add some additional lighting, but we wouldn't dare touch the paint." [Atlanta INtown]
