East Lake MARTA Station Overhaul Begins March 13

🚀 The Gist: East Lake MARTA Station’s north pedestrian bridge and parking lot will close for renovations starting March 13, aiming to enhance ADA accessibility and safety.

🛠 The Details: MARTA is set to start deconstructing and replacing the north pedestrian bridge at East Lake Station as part of its Service, Experience, and Expansion initiative. The upgrade includes a new elevator, improved flooring, lighting, and paint to boost accessibility and safety. The closure will redirect all traffic to the south pedestrian bridge and parking lot until October. A Mobility shuttle will operate to assist with the transition, and occasional road closures on West Howard Avenue are expected.

🔢 By The Numbers:

  • 1 north pedestrian bridge for deconstruction and replacement
  • 7 months of closure from March to October
  • 15 to 20 minutes additional time recommended for Mobility services

👥 What You Can Do: Passengers are advised to plan for additional travel time and use the south pedestrian bridge and parking lot. Stay informed on road closures and service updates via MARTA’s website.

🔜 What’s Next?: Following the north bridge renovation, similar upgrades are planned for the south bridge, ensuring continued enhancements to station accessibility and safety.
