MARTA Plans Meeting in Alpharetta on Ga. 400 Expansion

MARTA will solicit community input on the potential expansion of transit service and improved mobility along the Ga. 400 corridor.

MARTA Plans Meeting in Alpharetta on Ga. 400 Expansion
MARTA, along with the Federal Transit Administration, will gather at Alpharetta City Hall next week to solicit community input on the possible expansion of transit service and improved mobility along Georgia 400. 

An open house will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday Sept. 26, which will be followed by an hour-long presentation. 

MARTA staff will be on hand to receive feedback and take questions from residents, review the progress of the project and discuss possible next steps. 

The Ga. 400 Study has set forth alternatives that can be done to improve transit along the corridor, such as light-rail, heavy-rail and bus rapid transit.

Analysis on the alternatives is needed for the agency to qualify for federal funding, and is required by the National Environmental Policies Act (NEPA).    

If residents can't attend the meeting, written comments can be sent to Janide Sidifall, Office of Transit Systems Planning, MARTA, 2424 Piedmont Road, NE, Atlanta, GA 30324-330 by Oct. 28.

For more information or to submit comments online, visit MARTA's website, contact Sidifall at (404) 848.5828 or e-mail the project team at Connect400@itsmarta.com.
