PATH400 is a planned 5.2-mile stretch of trail space along Ga. 400. The 12-foot wide, multi-use, paved walkway will begin at Loridans Drive, will travel through Tower Place, and will end at Morosgo Drive. Work on the first phase between Lenox and Old Ivy roads is slated to begin before spring 2014, with an anticipated completion year of 2017. Expect lane closures during the summer. Eventually the trail will connect to PATH trails in East Altanta knon as the South Fork Conservancy.
