The Future Unfolds: Exciting Developments on the Peachtree Creek Greenway

In the heart of Metro Atlanta, a remarkable transformation is underway. The Peachtree Creek Greenway (PCG), a beacon of urban revitalization and community connection, is progressing towards a future where nature, recreation, and accessibility coalesce. I wanted  to update you on the upcoming developments in the PCG and to remind you of the pivotal role played by Peachtree Creek Greenway, Inc. (PCGI) in bringing this vision to life.

Upcoming Developments: As we step into the next year, significant milestones await the PCG. A key development is the replacement of the bridge over North Druid Hills Road, scheduled for the first quarter. This project, spearheaded by the Georgia Department of Transportation, is not just a structural enhancement but a gateway to further expansion. It includes creating a trail passage under the bridge, a crucial link in the Greenway’s chain.

Further south, the City of Brookhaven is gearing up to commence construction on the segment of the PCG stretching from North Druid Hills Rd. down to the city limits near Greens Liquor Store on Buford Highway. This segment will eventually connect to Atlanta’s portion of the PCG, leading to the Confluence Bridge off of Adina Drive, where the Greenway will meet the Atlanta Beltline.

Looking north, plans are in place for Brookhaven to start construction from Briarwood Rd. near REI, extending up to Clairmont Rd. at Sam’s Club. This expansion is a significant stride towards our vision: in about five years, you’ll be able to journey from Sam’s Club to the Beltline, PATH 400 and beyond.

The Role of PCGI: The journey of the PCG is a testament to the power of community initiative and collaboration. PCGI has been the driving force, the collective voice that transformed  citizens’ dreams into a tangible reality. Our engagement with local officials and staff across jurisdictions, (Atlanta, Brookhaven, Unincorporated DeKalb, Chamblee and Doraville) has been instrumental in reaching the current state of the PCG. As we look forward to the next phase of development, PCGI’s role remains crucial in advocating for and guiding the progress of the Greenway.

The Peachtree Creek Greenway is more than just a trail; it’s a living, evolving symbol of community spirit and perseverance. As we continue to make strides, your involvement becomes ever more vital. We invite you to join us on this journey – follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn to become a part of this transformative project.

The Peachtree Creek Greenway is unfolding as a vibrant artery through Atlanta, promising new connections, renewed urban spaces, and a greener future. With each new development, we move closer to a trail that not only spans miles but also bridges communities. Your support and involvement are crucial in this journey. Let’s make the dream of a fully connected PCG a reality, for us and for future generations.
