Buckhead is excited about PATH400, its 5.2-mile answer to the Beltline. They want you to know that, thus the frequent construction updates and chipper "I could make you excited" Walter Meego soundtrack to the $10 million project's latest video tour. And maybe they should be: After a bit of bad luck with winter/spring weather put construction behind schedule, it really is moving at quite a clip now, especially for a project that was only conceived three years ago. The video shows how far the walking and biking trail — a partnership between the Buckhead Community Improvement District, Livable Buckhead and the PATH Foundation — has come since work first started in March. Granted, it's still mostly piles of dirt, heavy machinery and board members in inappropriate footwear, but it's progress nonetheless.
The first of the project's seven phases is the half-mile stretch from Lenox Road at Tower Place to Old Ivy Road that's shown in the video. Lane closures on Lenox Road will start next month, but this phase is expected to be completed well before the holiday madness begins. Phase 2, which will run from Old Ivy Road to West Wieuca, will start later in the summer with a goal of being completed by next spring.
