Atlanta BeltLine Inc. has announced that the Gateway Trail that connects to the Historic Fourth Ward Park will be closed for approximately one week, starting Aug. 22.
The closure will take place near the Angier Springs access point to the East Side Trail, a press release from ABI says.
“Modifications to the Gateway Trail to/from Historic Fourth Ward Park will be made by the developers of North & Line residential project,” a press release from ABI says. “As a courtesy to Atlanta BeltLine Trail users, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is notifying the public that the Gateway Trail will be closed during these modifications.”
ABI says the modifications “are meant to integrate access” from the development to the trail and bring into compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
The following detour routes will be in place during the closure.
– Accessing Historic Fourth Ward Park from the Eastside Trail: From the Gateway Trail access, walk north along the Eastside Trail to Ponce City Market. After crossing the North Avenue Bridge, at the public plaza, there is a set of stairs or elevator that will take pedestrians and bicyclists down to North Avenue. At North Avenue, travel west to the crosswalk at the Ponce City Market drive entrance. There is a pedestrian activated signal so you can cross the street safely into Historic Fourth Ward Park.
– Accessing the Eastside Trail from Historic Fourth Ward Park: Travel along North Angier Road or through the Park to the northernmost part of the park. Use the crosswalk across from the Ponce City Market drive entrance, to cross North Avenue. Travel east along North Avenue to the stairs and elevator adjacent to the parking deck. At the top, you can access the Eastside Trail.
