The public will have its first opportunity to see design concepts for new crosswalks that will designate where PATH400 runs through the Lindbergh area at the Trails, Tails and Ales event 1 to 5 p.m. Nov. 4 near Mile Zero of PATH400 at 2323 Piedmont Road NE.
PATH400 is a 5.2-mile walkable, bikeable greenway being constructed on public land adjacent to GA 400 extending from the bank of Peachtree Creek northward toward the northern edge of Atlanta. It is the centerpiece of a broader greenspace plan, the Buckhead Collection, initiated by Atlanta Councilman Howard Shook. Livable Buckhead is spearheading the PATH400 project in partnership with the Buckhead Community Improvement District and the PATH Foundation. Several other agencies and organizations are involved in the development of PATH400, including Georgia Department of Transportation, the city of Atlanta, MARTA, Atlanta Neighborhood Planning Unit B and Atlanta Public Schools. PATH400 will increase access to community amenities such as arts, historic, and cultural exhibits, neighborhood pocket parks and greenspaces, retail centers and learning centers.
Taking a cue from Decatur, Livable Buckhead has hired local artists to develop colorful crosswalks. The public will choose the winning design, and voting officially begins at the Trails, Tails and Ales event.
