    NORTHEAST TRAIL CONSTRUCTION UPDATE

    • Northeast Trail  Segment 1: A 60% design package is expected next month for this segment, which runs from the northern end of the Eastside Trail to Westminster Drive.
    • Northeast Trail  Segment 2: Clearing is well underway around the Piedmont Avenue bridge, with crews at work prepping the easternmost bay under the bridge for the multiuse trail to come through. The trail alignment and location of the future ramp at the northeast corner of the trail / road intersection can be viewed in this Northeast Trail presentation from April 13.
      Work on light poles installation along the paved portion of the trail continues. That section will remain open, although we appreciate your patience in cases where the work may extend onto the trail.
      The short, unpaved section to the north will remain open to trail users until construction commences on that segment. ABI will notify the public of trail closures on other sections as construction advances. Construction activities are expected to continue for the next year.
    • Northeast Trail  Segment 3: A 60% design package was received this month from the design team, Heath & Lineback, and is under review by the ABI team.
    • Details on each Northeast Trail segment can be found in our design and construction updates section: Segment 1, Segment 2, Segments 3.

     What’s in Atlanta’s new budget and how do you fit in?

    The city council usually adopts the finalized budget in a late June meeting, but the official deadline is June 30. The budget must be adopted before the fiscal year starts July 1. 

    The public doesn’t have much direct say during this vetting process, but there are opportunities to give feedback in public meetings. The year’s public budget hearing is on June 7th from 6:15 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. It is for both the budget and proposed increases in property tax millage rates. 

    If you want to take part in the budget proceedings, this meeting is a chance to make your feelings known–but you can also give direct feedback before June 7. Go ahead and contact your city council members to tell them what changes you want to see in your community.

      Monroe-Armour Roundabout Work Progresses Toward Completion, Rescheduled for this Summer

    Atlanta - Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors have provided an updated schedule for completion of the Monroe-Armour Roundabout at the intersection of Monroe Drive NE and Armour Drive NE in the City of Atlanta, Fulton County. The revised schedule predicts an early July 2022 completion. Delays related to the relocation of several utilities in the project area (including Atlanta Gas Light, AT&T and Zayo) have been resolved. Continued construction of sidewalks and the roundabout center island is dependent on securing the required concrete quantities, given the nationwide shortage.

    Check out our blog for complete info and project manager contact info. Please report extended delays in traffic. 



    DON'T DELAY- THERE IS STILL GRANT MONEY!!

     Great news! The application deadline for the relaunched Resurgence Grant Fund has been extended to Friday, May 27 at 5 p.m. 


    City of Atlanta small businesses, including startups with a business license and nonprofits with a business license or Letter of Good Standing, can apply for up to $40,000 to reimburse the costs of business interruptions due to COVID-19.

    Monroe-Armour Roundabout Work Progresses Toward Completion, Rescheduled for this Summer

    Atlanta - Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) contractors have provided an updated schedule for completion of the Monroe-Armour Roundabout at the intersection of Monroe Drive NE and Armour Drive NE in the City of Atlanta, Fulton County. The revised schedule predicts an early July 2022 completion. Delays related to the relocation of several utilities in the project area (including Atlanta Gas Light, AT&T and Zayo) have been resolved. Continued construction of sidewalks and the roundabout center island is dependent on securing the required concrete quantities, given the nationwide shortage.

    Weather and on-site conditions permitting, contractors will continue Stage 2 activities this week and begin Stage 3 in May as follows:

    • Curb and gutter installations are currently underway.
    • Pending concrete delivery, sidewalk construction will begin this week and allow progression to Stage 3. These concrete pours will require lane closures and flagging Operations.
    • Stage 3 construction, targeted for mid- to late May, shifts traffic onto the new

    roundabout lane configuration. On-site signage and barrels will direct traffic flow and emergency vehicles will pace traffic to slower speeds. The shift will be timed to minimize impacts to commuters in the area.

    • Stage 3 also includes construction of the roundabout center island (estimated two- three weeks), installation and activation of lighting, installation of landscaping, paving and striping the lanes through end of June 2022.
    • Given the above schedule, GDOT anticipates final acceptance of the completed project in early July.

    Once complete, features of the new single-lane Monroe-Armour Roundabout will improve drivers and pedestrian safety and reduce traffic delays through this busy intersection, including:

    • On Armour Drive southbound, a new right turn lane and left turn lane
    • On Monroe Drive westbound, a shared right turn and through lane
    • On Monroe Drive eastbound, a shared left turn and through lane; and
    • The existing right-turn only lane on the SR 13 exit ramp to the intersection will be converted to a shared left and right turn lane.
    • In addition, a bus stop and ADA-compliant sidewalks and curb and gutter will be Constructed.

    The $1.6 million project is scheduled for completion in early July 2022, pending weather, on-site conditions and the availability of required concrete quantities.

    Message boards and signage will advise drivers to slow their speed through the area.

    Motorists are advised to expect some traffic delays, exercise caution, and reduce their speed while traveling through work zones. Before heading out, get real-time information on work status and traffic conditions. Call 511, visit 511ga.org, or download the Georgia 511 app.
