This award recognizes large projects in densely developed areas that may include a combination of roadway and structural work to fit within an urban environment while handling large volumes of traffic. Interstate North Parkway & Interstate North Circle were repurposed/reconfigured to improve north-south mobility, provide safe and enhanced accommodations for pedestrian traffic in the area, and handle daily traffic demands as well as traffic generated by events at SunTrust Park.
The Heath & Lineback Team is providing design and engineering services for the Northeast Corridor Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine. This trail will create connectivity to the intersecting trails of PATH400, North Fork Peachtree Creek (via the Cheshire Farm Trail), and South Fork Peachtree Creek. The Northeast Trail has the potential to be the first section of the Atlanta BeltLine to cross active railroad tracks and I-85.
