Duluth, Georgia – The city of Duluth has recently completed Phase 1 of the Main Street Enhanced Sidewalk Project, marking a step towards improving the city’s pedestrian and cyclist infrastructure.
This ambitious project has successfully introduced a spacious 10-foot pathway stretching from Rogers Bridge Road to just shy of Peachtree Industrial Blvd. It’s designed to cater not only to pedestrians but also to joggers and cyclists, showcasing the city’s dedication to fostering a more connected and accessible community environment.
The completion of this phase was marked with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on February 1, 2024, attended by prominent city officials including Mayor Whitlock and Council Members Manfred Graeder, Shenèe Johnson Holloway, and Marline Thomas, along with city staff and project managers. The ceremony symbolized the official opening of the pathway, celebrating the city’s progress toward enhanced connectivity and encouraging public engagement in outdoor activities.
Looking ahead, the city is already in the process of initiating Phase II of the Main Street Enhanced Sidewalk Project. This next phase aims to extend the pathway from Brock Road to Rogers Bridge Road, further connecting the city’s key locations and making it easier for residents and visitors to navigate the area without relying solely on vehicular transportation. Over the next 12 to 18 months, the city is committed to continuing its efforts to complete this vital project, ensuring comprehensive accessibility across the community.
Residents and visitors are encouraged to take advantage of the newly opened pathway, exploring the area on foot, by bike, or jog.
