Transform 285/400 So Far...

With years of meticulous planning and construction drawing to a close, the travel experience where Atlanta meets Perimeter is so much better. Seriously. Here’s a look at its progress so far.

PATH400 Greenway Trail Connection

What makes this project so special is it’s connection via the northernmost segment of PATH400 at I-285. While Sandy Springs is moving design and funding forward to connect with the existing trail in Buckhead, a dozen miles of trails are also in the works, connecting PATH400 to countless destinations like Perimeter Mall, Sandy Springs MARTA, City Springs, and beyond.

“It’s made a tremendous difference already. Especially on 400N. Changing the 285E/400N exit to a flyover made a world of difference.”

David Glover, Commuter

“Can start to feel the positives from the changes.”

Suzanne Jarrett Melan, Resident

“So much better from every direction.”

Nathan Lowe, Commuter

#PerimeterPretzel Puts a Local Twist on the Commute

Wonder what’s all the fuss with this “knot”-sense? Locally, the improved 285/400 Interchange has earned a fun nickname with locals—Perimeter Pretzel—because its twisty design lends to a buttery-smooth travel flow.

And here’s a little-known tidbit that makes this unofficial moniker extra fitting: Perimeter is home to GoTo Foods, the owner of everyone’s favorite pretzelmaker Auntie Anne’s.
