LINC Phase 1 map
The LINC starts in Newnan near the Summergrove subdivision, behind the Market Square shopping center. Mile Marker 0.0 is located on Highwoods Pkwy. This section of the LINC features woods, bridges, a tunnel under Lower Fayetteville Road, a mural, a big hill, and a healthy dose of peace and quiet. Phase 1 is approximately 1.4 miles long, ending on Newnan Crossing Blvd. near the Kroger shopping center.
LINC Phase 1, Phase 2, and Future
Phase 2 of the LINC is under construction. It will connect the current terminus of Phase 1 to downtown Newnan at the old Railroad Depot. Phase 2 will add approximately 3.4 miles to the 1.4 miles of Phase 1. The LINC Bridge over Interstate 85 is anticipated to be completed in 2020, with the rest of Phase 2 to be constructed in 2021. Future trails, shown in red, will depend on countywide priorities and partnerships.
Funding for “Future” sections of the LINC beyond Phase 1 and Phase 2 has not been identified.
