The first lane closures of the Krog Street tunnel are in effect as crews work to extend the Beltline’s East Side Trail.
The closure is to allow for installation of lighting and hand rails.
“The northbound lane will close June 12-30.,” Atlanta BeltLine Inc.’s announcement says. “The southbound lane will close July 1-21. Closures will take place between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.”
The extension will bring the trail south from Irwin Street to Kirkwood Avenue.
“As part of this work, new lighting and handrails will be installed within the Krog Tunnel, creating a pedestrian-friendly environment beneath the rail yard,” the announcement says. “Additionally, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. will address safety issues at the intersection of Krog Street and DeKalb Avenue by installing a pedestrian scramble, completely halting traffic and allowing pedestrians to traverse the intersection.”
