Edgewood Avenue bridge closure predicted to be no fun whatsoever

Avoid the purple! Purples bad!
Hear ye, hear ye! Edgewood Avenue between Randolph and Krog streets will close on March 18 so crews can begin the yearlong process of demolishing and replacing the bridge that spans the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail.

According to Beltline officials, the Edgewood Avenue Bridge is "currently the lowest structurally-rated bridge in use in the City of Atlanta." They say the design of the $4.5 million replacement bridge will provide greater pedestrian access and include the option of connecting transit service "via the extension of the Atlanta Streetcar network onto the Atlanta BeltLine corridor." No telling when that's scheduled to take place.

Detours for cyclists, pedestrians, and motorists are available after the jump.
