Walking Tour of West End Trail, Atlanta BeltLine (meet at end of Lena Street NW)

 

A special 2.4-mile walking tour of the West End Trail of the Atlanta BeltLine will be offered during the 3:00 – 5:00 PM session.  The tour will focus on unique engineering aspects of this portion of the BeltLine, including stormwater management, three types of retaining walls, and geotechnical challenges.  Participants will be asked to carpool between the starting and ending points of the walking tour; further details and instructions will be provided at PDH Day.

Also, make plans to join us at the Monday Night Brewing Garage following the BeltLine tour!  The Monday Night Brewing Garage is located right along the tour path.  Enjoy an informal social with your engineering colleagues instead of sitting in Friday afternoon traffic.
