In February of this year, the City of Chamblee was awarded an $80,000 Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) grant from the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to fund a new planning study to explore possibilities to further extend the City’s Rail Trail through Downtown. This new grant will lead to a concept plan for Phase 3 of the trail, which will extend the eastward from Chamblee Dunwoody Way through the new Town Center project to Ingersoll Rand Drive. The study will also explore possible locations for the trail to cross the MARTA tracks to the south of Downtown and extend to New Peachtree Road, as well as to potentially connect with new development at Doraville’s GM site. The Rail Trail extension study will be in progress by Summer 2018, with opportunities for public input later this year.
If you have any questions concerning the Rail Trail Phase 3 Extension Livable Centers Initiative (LCI) please contact Rebecca Keefer, City of Chamblee Special Projects Manager, at 470-395-2347.
