Event description

Description

Come join the USGBC Georgia Emerging Professionals for a special tour of the Westside Beltline now that it has opened to the general public. We will meet at 764 Catherine St SW which will be the end of the tour then carpool to the beginning. We will walk the 3 mile section that will start at the west end of Lena St which is the temp northern end of the West End Trail. Kevin Burke will guide us through the highlights and history of the trail such as Holderness Woods….an area where the old rail corridor inexplicably widens out; one of our largest retaining walls that supports the trail dipping down to engage the connection to Stafford St w/o need of a separate ramp; and discuss the construction that will be required to accomplish the alignments between the trail and the existing infrastructure. When we cross Allene, we will be in the last stretch before we finish our tour adjacent to the first BeltLine Urban Farm.

Come learn more about this historic project. The tour will be limited to 15 people and you must be able to walk the mixed terrain path. Any questions, contact Shira Weintraub, shiraweintraub@gmail.com, 310 975-4158.
