The Beltline's Eastside Trail extension may be falling behind schedule, but PATH400, Buckhead's 5.2-mile long multi-use trail, is seemingly unstoppable. After getting final approval from the Georgia Department of Transportation for the entire length of the trail in August, the $10 million project is wrapping up Phase 1 (between Lenox Road at Tower Place and Old Ivy Road) and getting fired up about Phase 2 (from Old Ivy to Wieuca Road). And "fired up" is no exaggeration. The organizers of the project — a partnership between the Buckhead Community Improvement District, Livable Buckhead and the PATH Foundation — put forth a virtually endless stream of cheerful video tours, delighted construction updates and merry goat meet-and-greets.
Starting this week, teams will be clearing and grading the Phase 2 area to prep the site for construction, which should start in earnest by mid-November. The whole segment, including the sandblasted "Buckhead" wall, is expected to be completed by the end of the year. Lenox Road has already been resurfaced and final striping will happen shortly.
