It looks like some of the land has been acquired to begin extending the trail into Atlanta.
The Cobb extension will be built in two major sections. The first is taking it from the current dead end near the East-West Connector to Plant Atkinson Road. This will be the easy part as it’s a direct rails-to-trails conversion that could take as little as four or five months once construction begins.
The second, more difficult part, will be an extension from that point to Atlanta Road and the river itself. As CSX is maintaining use of some rails east of Plant Atkinson Road, the trail will leave the train tracks, which means there will be right of way acquisition involved, according to Meyer.
