ATLANTA - The
Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) will host a groundbreaking
ceremony to mark the start of renovations at Indian Creek rail station, and the
kickoff to the systemwide Rail Station Rehabilitation Program, on Monday, Nov.

Indian Creek rail
station is the easternmost terminus of the Blue Line and plays an important
role in connecting customers east of DeKalb County to the greater MARTA system,
averaging close to 10,000 riders a week. Improvements include a new lighted
walkway from the parking to lot into the station, replacing all signage and
damaged concrete, new public restrooms, tile cladding on the concourse level,
and new landscaping. The $10 million project will be designed by Axis
Infrastructure and constructed by Carroll Daniel Construction Company and C.D.
Moody Construction Company and is funded through the penny sales tax in DeKalb
Station Rehabilitation Program is a multi-year $300 million investment in
improving the customer experience through projects that range from the
aesthetic to the transformative. In addition to enhancing customer safety with
new lighting and wayfinding, projects will use materials that are easier to
maintain, making stations cleaner and safer for riders. All 38 rail stations
are part of the Program, with Indian Creek kicking things off, and College
Park, Five Points, Lenox, Arts Center, H.E. Holmes, and Airport stations
included in the first phase.
