The extension of the Eastside Trail and the Southside Trail on the Atlanta BeltLine could be coming soon, according to a report from Curbed Atlanta.

BeltLine officials are reviewing project bids for the Eastside Trail extension, which will see the trail continue from Irwin Street to Memorial Drive. A request for qualifications is out to companies who want to bid for design of the Southside Trail, which would take the BeltLine to Glenwood Avenue and beyond.

While Beltline officials could not comment on the specifics of proposals or the project timeline, they did confirm that funding has been secured for the extension project, and they have procured the portion of rail line where construction would take place.
