MARTA TO RENOVATE INMAN PARK/REYNOLDSTOWN STATION PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE
The Metropolitan Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) has begun renovations on the pedestrian bridge at Inman Park/Reynoldstown rail station.
The bridge, built in the late 1970’s, will retain its metal structure, while the concrete portions will be replaced with fiberglass reinforced composite decking. This material is lighter and stronger than concrete and helps minimize vibration in the structure. It also comes in various colors so the new design will enhance the entire look of the rail station.
The first phase of the project is on the north side of the pedestrian bridge and continues until next spring.
Beginning this week:
- There will be no pedestrian access to Inman Park/Reynoldstown Station from the North/DeKalb Avenue entrance.
- A shuttle service will connect customers to the South/Seaboard Avenue station entrance. The shuttle departs from the north end bus loop beginning at 5 a.m. and arrives every ten minutes during service hours.
- The south end bus loop remains open.
- Route 6 will be detoured to the south end bus loop.
- Zipcars will be removed from the station.
- Parking available at south/Seaboard Avenue lot.
The second phase of the project on the south side of the bridge will begin next spring with a fall completion date.
