The BTI makes friends!

It was a great week for the Boulevard Tunnel Initiative! On Monday, April 22nd, we met with representatives from CSX to talk about the tunnel project. They were wonderfully kind to not only hear about the initiative, but to take a walking tour through the tunnel and other Cabbagetown streets. We look forward to working with them in the upcoming months!

On Wednesday, April 24th, we met with the Old Fourth Ward business association. The business owners stand to gain so much with an updated and safe tunnel, which will effectively link Cabbagetown and Grant Park with the Old Fourth Ward. We can’t thank them enough for their support and ideas and look forward to many more collaborations. Image

Updates from the Tunnel

The first community clean up date has been set! Do you have a couple hours to give back to your community? BTI volunteers are teaming up with the YoBoulevard campaign (http://www.yoboulevard.com/) to clean up the area on Saturday, May 18th at 9am. The City of Atlanta will be on hand with trucks, supplies, and trash bags. Volunteers will get a t-shirt and a chance to put their name and efforts behind something great. Sign up on our Facebook page!
