Atlanta BeltLine

R2T was selected as a pre-qualified consultant to the Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. in their efforts to combine greenspace, trails, transit, and new development along 22-miles of historic rail segments that encircle the urban core. This pre-qualification was awarded in response to the Beltline’s 5-Year Work Plan for Parks and Greenspace projects in the area of Construction Management.

R2T has integrated Geographic Information System (GIS) with PC SWMM stormwater management software to develop preliminary hydrology analysis for the southside corridor design of the Atlanta BeltLine. The Southside Trail project consisted of the design of a 14’ wide concrete multi-use path with 3’ soft shoulders on each side, extending approximately 4 miles between the two logical termini— University Avenue and Glenwood Avenue. GIS tools were utilized to analyze stormwater management and they included the following tasks:

  • Providing conceptual design consisting of preliminary hydrology analysis concepts for existing stormwater basins within the project limits.
  • Prepare preliminary design plans for the detention/infiltration pond and swale plans, as well as details and special provisions for of proposed stormwater basins.
  • NPDES erosion control plans per linear infrastructure permit as well as Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) requirements.
