Contractors working on the Eastside Trail will close Irwin Street where it intersects with the trail.
The intersection is located between Sampson Street/Auburn Avenue and Krog Street in the Old Fourth Ward/Inman Park area.
The closure is necessary to complete a portion of the Eastside Trail extension. The closure begins Monday, March 20 and ends April 17. The closure will be in effect 24 hours a day during this time.
