Project Kicks Off Systemwide Rail Station Rehabilitation Program

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. 22 beginning at 10 a.m. 

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 County.

MARTA’s Rail 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.
