- Currently the Eastside Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine has two miles of paved trail that ends at Irwin Street.
- Past neighborhood clean-ups and now construction traffic keep the trail a dirt footpath as it extends behind the Stoveworks between Irwin Street and Airline Drive.
- Another angle on Edgewood Avenue Bridge construction. When finished, the avenue will have direct Beltline access.
- The unpaved section of trail is separated from undeveloped land and an apartment development south of Edgewood Avenue.
- One potential plan calls for a tunnel to extend under DeKalb Avenue, the CSX train yard and enter Cabbagetown on Wylie Street near the Cotton Mill Lofts.
- Undeveloped brownfields exist along many segments of the BeltLine.
- A plan is being formulated for how the trail can safely pass through the Krog Street Tunnel.
- Where Krog Street meets Wylie Street, the trail will continue along the street entering Reynoldstown.
- Officials stress that an important part of the development is to make it safe for pedestrians and cyclists.
- The trail reenters to old train corridor at Stein Steel in Reynoldstown at Flat Shoals Avenue.
- Here, rails still lie along the cleared trail.
- Reynoldstown neighbors have embraced the trail as a footpath for now.
- Trash clean-ups and brush clearing have opened up previously overgrown lots.
- Temporary and permanent art has been a staple along this segment of trail at Kirkwood Avenue. Evereman is 4U ATL!
- Where possible, existing train structures will be incorporated in to the future development. Let's hope this overpass mirrors the overhauled Ralph McGill Bridge.
- Connectivity, art and development all come together on the Atlanta Beltline as it reaches Memorial Drive in Reynoldstown.
- A historic train depot and former industrial building have been transformed into a successful restaurant and condo space.
- The Beltline crosses Memorial Drive and extends along Bill Kennedy Way.
- Officials say a plan is in the works to cross the Beltline over Interstate 20.
- Trees line the streets of Glenwood Park, a mixed-use development.
- The end, for now: You reenter the rail corridor at Glenwood Avenue. This segment is still actively used by the CSX “Sand Train” to deliver to the LaFarge Cement plant.
- The highly disputed plot of land at 800 Glenwood Ave. Plans have been presented to the city for the construction of a big box retail store that has been actively protested by neighbors and other Beltline supporters.
