The detour routes will use Irwin Street and DeKalb Avenue for east-west traffic. All nearby businesses will be open and accessible during construction. The Edgewood Avenue Bridge is currently the lowest structurally-rated bridge in use in the City of Atlanta and is in need of replacement. The design of the replacement bridge better integrates it with the Atlanta BeltLine with new pedestrian connections and an option to connect transit service via the extension of the Atlanta Streetcar network onto the Atlanta BeltLine corridor.
