The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) yesterday announced the agency will spend $250 million on transit improvements in DeKalb County, Georgia, including rail station rehabilitation and rail system maintenance.
MARTA will rehabilitate eight stations in the county by 2025, and complete state-of-good-repair maintenance projects on the rail, bus and paratransit system, agency officials said in a press release.
MARTA will invest $100 million to rehabilitate the Indian Creek, Brookhaven, Chamblee, Decatur, Avondale, Dunwoody, Kensington and Doraville stations.
The improvements are outlined in DeKalb County’s Transit Master Plan, which was incorporated into MARTA’s engineering report earlier this month after the county boards in four MARTA jurisdictions approved an extension of the sales tax to fund MARTA rail and bus service through 2057.
