It’s no April Fool’s joke, the Edgewood Avenue Bridge over the Atlanta BeltLine corridor reopens to vehicular, pedestrian and bicycle traffic today. The bridge has been closed for over a year for demolitian and reconstruction. The old bridge was more than 100 years old and was one of the lowest structurally rated bridges in use in the City of Atlanta.
The reopening of the bridge will significantly improve connectivity between Inman Park and the Old Fourth Ward neighborhoods, benefitting businesses, residents and commuters who traverse the area. Later this year, the Atlanta BeltLine will begin construction on the southern extension of the Eastside Trail, which currently terminates at Irwin St.
A dedication for the new bridge will be held this summer when ramp and stair connections to the BeltLine are completed. With the addition of ramp and stair connections to the BeltLine, Edgewood Avenue will become a new access point to the Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail when the new extension is complete.
Epic Development is currently building new homes along the Eastside Trail including a modern style home at 582 Morgan Street, three new single family homes on Fortune Place and a 10 unit townhome community at Irwin Street.
