City of Tucker Model Trail Project Underway

Trail segment “1A” is located in the heart of Downtown Tucker

The City of Tucker has announced that “Segment 1A” from the Tucker PATH Master Trail Plan has been selected for implementation as the system’s “model trail project”. This 0.3 mile segment utilizes a portion of Downtown Tucker’s historic network of alleys to connect Main Street, Lavista Road and Railroad Avenue. The project aims to not only transform the Downtown Tucker experience, but also serve as a model for future trails.

Downtown Tucker’s historic 20′-wide alleys are large enough to accommodate a 12′-wide trail as well as space for outdoor dining (Design provided by Kaizen Collaborative Design, Inc.)

The project includes construction of the multi-use trail, which ranges from 10 to 12 feet in width, as well as installation of lighting, benches, trash cans, signage, landscaping and decorative brick banding. Kaizen Collaborative has completed the design and engineering phase and right-of-way acquisition is underway. Construction is scheduled to begin this year.

The project will contribute significantly to the amount of public space in Downtown Tucker
