This $25 million Design-Build project will reconstruct the 110-year old Courtland Street Bridge from Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive to Gilmer Street. The City of Atlanta is responsible for right of way acquisition and the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) is funding this project’s construction. Renew Atlanta is contributing $4.2M toward this project.
Retro-fit of 95+ year old bridge over Southern Railroad between Elliot Street & Spring Street for pedestrian use only. The Nelson Street Bridge was closed on January 24, 2017 and will not reopen due to extensive deterioration of major bridge components associated with the age of the structure. Public safety is of paramount importance, and the City of Atlanta is working diligently to announce plans for a replacement bridge, which will be funded through Renew Atlanta.
**This project is under review. Construction dates, budget, and other info will be updated as a part of our Prioritization & Rebaselining Initiative.**
