Yearlong sidewalk project begins Monday at popular Buckhead park 

Sidewalk improvements near a popular Buckhead park will begin Monday, infrastructure improvement program Renew Atlanta and city officials announced in a news release Friday. 

Five-foot wide sidewalks will be installed along Atlanta Memorial Park, which sits at 651 Wesley Drive, according to the release. The project is expected to last at least a year and work hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. 

There will be no work during major holidays. 

Crews will add sidewalks on the west side of the park on Northside Drive across from the Bobby Jones Golf Course, officials said. More than one mile of sidewalk and curbing will be added along Woodward Way and Wesley Drive. 

Residents will still have access to the park during the project. 

Officials did not announce any road closures during the project, but said traffic will be “maintained.”
