By the time you read this newsletter, the southbound side of the Georgia Tech Parkway will have been closed for good. PATH crews officially closed the southbound side of the parkway around the 1st of September to make room for a spectacular trail and linear park from Northside Drive to North Avenue.
Georgia Tech, PATH and the City of Atlanta are cooperating to transform half of the Tech Parkway into a two-way cycle track with a paralleling walking and jogging path, surrounded by greenery. The remaining northbound lanes of the parkway will be converted to two-way traffic.
The new facility will provide a park-like setting for travel between West Midtown and Centennial Olympic Park (COP). The cycle track will continue across North Avenue along Luckie Street to the planned Bike Depot at COP.
Construction began in May and will continue into early 2017. Your gifts to the 2016 PATH Capital Campaign are making this project possible.
