Beltline's Eastside Trail construction continues

Looking for an excuse to stop working? Take shelter in a new Facebook photo album featuring snapshots of construction along the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail expected to open this April. Crews are busy building retention walls and supports along the 2.5-mile trail which, once complete, will snake between Piedmont Park and (just short of) DeKalb Avenue. (Revised trail plans call for ending the path near Irwin Street until the Edgewood Avenue bridge is demolished and reconstructed, which should take place between 2012 and 2014. Once the bridge is in place, trail work will continue to DeKalb Avenue.) The next big obstacles: Finishing a new bridge over Ralph McGill Boulevard and repairing the bridge spanning Ponce de Leon Avenue — a task which might require the partial closure of the busy street. Progress ain't pretty!
