Capitol Square Extension

Astra is in full swing on the Capitol Square Extension project. As part of our scope, demolition of the existing pedestrian bridge and the parking deck across from the James H. “Sloppy” Floyd Building occurred the week of May 1st!

The concept of this project demolishes the parking deck and utility bridge and replaces them with an “extension” of Capitol Square to the MLK-Jesse Hill intersection. Our winning design of the extension creates new traffic lanes, upgrades traffic signals and adds an enhanced pedestrian experience to the existing intersections at Capitol Avenue-Capitol Square and MLK-Jesse Hill. #ProjectUpdate #AstraBuilt

Northwest Beltline Connector Trail

Astra has begun construction on the Northwest Beltline Connector Trail project, which involves the installation of a 12’ wide concrete multi-use trail and building a bridge over Peachtree Creek. The trail will connect Northside Drive to the existing Beltline trail near Colonial Homes.

Along with the trail and bridge, Astra’s scope of work also includes other ancillary services such as grading, demolition, asphalt milling and paving, striping, stream break stabilization, and installation of ADA ramps, storm drainage, signage, granite curb, hand rail, guard rail & gulf netting, waste receptacles, benches, bike racks, and fixed & removable bollards, and erosion control. #AstraBuilt #ProjectUpdate #ConnectingTheBeltline

Bob Callan Trunk Trail, Phase 2

Phase 2 of Bob Callan Trunk Trail is well underway! The trail consists of the construction of approximately 0.92 miles of 10-foot wide multi-use path that follows the west side of Rottenwood Creek. This project begins at the existing Bob Callan trailhead just north of I-285 and continues along Rottenwood Creek to North Interstate Parkway near #SunTrustPark. Pedestrian bridges are being built for portions of the trail along Rottenwood Creek, particularly in areas where the trail is within the existing floodplain. #AstraBuilt #ProjectUpdate
