How does this work affect rail service?

MARTA has parallel tracks all along its Red, Gold, Blue and Green lines – allowing for one train to run in each direction during normal operations. As individual sections of track are being repaired, trains must share a single track through the affected area. This “single tracking” can result in delays in rail service. We are doing our best to disrupt MARTA customers as little as possible during this process; however, some work during regular service hours cannot be avoided. The majority of the work is being done late at night and during weekends.
