South Columbia Drive Path Approved by City of Decatur

 

The Decatur City Commission recently approved Breedlove Land Planning’s “Option B” design for a shared-use path on South Columbia Drive. The improvements are needed to accommodate pedestrian traffic once the new Talley Street Upper Elementary School opens in August. The concept was designed o be used by pedestrians and cyclists, connecting the new Talley Street School, Legacy Park and the East Decatur Greenway.

The selected design includes a 10-foot shared use path with a three to five-foot landscaped buffer. The path will be about a quarter-mile long initially, though long-term plans call for eventually linking Talley with the multi-use path further south on Katie Kerr Drive. BLP also provided site design services for Talley Street Upper Elementary School.
