PATH Parkway Description

The PATH Parkway is the result of an innovative collaboration between the PATH Foundation, Georgia Institute Technology and the City of Atlanta. The creation of this multimodal corridor involved the elimination of southbound lanes of Tech Parkway, and reclaiming that space for non-motorized users. PATH originated the idea for the trail while Civil Engineering students from Georgia Tech led the concept and preliminary design. Although the corridor is a mere 1.5 miles, it connects to notable institutions including the university campus, The Coca-Cola Company Headquarters, the Georgia Aquarium and Centennial Olympic Park as well as other destinations in downtown Atlanta.

Traveling from Centennial Park up north along Luckie Street, you will find there are separate facilities for bikes and pedestrians. The former use a two-way cycle track to travel, with granite dividers to keep away vehicular traffic. By the time you get to Coca-Cola HQ, the parkway transitions into a shared trail. Crossing North Avenue (all the road crossings are at-grade), you will come to the Tech Parkway portion of the corridor, where users are split once more. The entire pathway is green and heavily-shaded and hums with activity from the students, residents and employees who frequent the area. It ends just north of Northside Drive.

This initiative was part of a plan to build a system of multiuse greenways with Centennial Olympic Park as the hub.
