Why is Airport Station Temporarily Closed?

Construction has been ongoing at Airport Station, and the project has a reached a phase where work can be completed more safely and efficiently with a temporary closure. 

MARTA worked with the Airport to establish the construction timetable using historical travel data. It was determined the travel lull experienced post-Spring Break and pre-Memorial Day was the best opportunity to complete this necessary work. 

The six-week closure will ensure the safety of customers and workers and significantly reduce construction time by 17 months.

Station improvements will include:

  • New RideStore
  • Public art installation
  • Replacement of all signage
  • Renovation of employee areas
  • New canopy complementing Airport canopy
  • New flooring on concourse and platforms levels
  • New wall cladding, ceilings, and lighting in concourse
  • Rehabilitation of existing elevator and installation of new elevator
