New Sidewalks Connect PATH to Parking in Chastain Park

July 21, 2010

Driving north on Powers Ferry Road from West Wieuca you can’t miss all of the orange cones.  It turns we are getting new sidewalks on the east side of Powers Ferry Road from West Wieuca to Stella Drive.  They began construction on the new sidewalks on Tuesday.

Personally I was an advocate for those sidewalks to be on the west side of Powers Ferry because that would connect the current sidewalks on Powers Ferry to Sutton Middle School.  Instead if you are walking on the sidewalks you will have to cross the street twice in order to walk to school if you are coming from the north.

Either way I am really excited to see the sidewalks and hope that visitors to the park will park in the Red lot and use those sidewalks to access Chastain Park and the PATH.  This should be a big help to the congestion on West Wieuca and will hopefully relieve some of the stresses of finding a parking spot.

Here are some pictures as construction was just starting on Tuesday.  I will post new pictures as the sidewalks progress.


On my way home today I was sad to see that they have cut down all of the trees lining the Powers Ferry side of the Red Lot.  I know they are making way for the sidewalks but I thought they were going to be able to salvage the trees.  Hopefully there is a plan to replace them.  Here are some pictures I took with my phone today.
