After years of planning, city leaders celebrated the launch of construction last week on the Proctor Creek Greenway on the western side of Atlanta.
The multi-purpose trail will string together more than 400 acres of greenspace, spanning from Maddox Park along the Beltline Westside Trail all the way to the Chattahoochee River.
The first phase of the project will include more than two miles of trails, connecting Bankead MARTA Station to the existing River Park Trail, passing through the planned Westside Quarry Park.
The City indicates that funding for the $4-million project will come from a combination of funds from TSPLOST, the Mayor’s Office of Resilience, the Department of Watershed Management, the PATH Foundation, and the Beltline.
Ultimately, plans call for work on the entire trail to be completed in six segments, according to a master plan finished in April.
