MARTA NEARING COMPLETION ON FIRST PHASE OF INMAN PARK PEDESTRIAN BRIDGE REHABILITATION PROJECT

Avatar

Metal panel installation

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) is nearing completion on the first phase of the pedestrian bridge rehabilitation at Inman Park/Reynoldstown rail station.

The bridge, built in the late 1970’s, will retain its metal structure, while the concrete portions are being 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 project began last December and includes the installation of new LED lighting along the pedestrian bridge and station concourse, as well as a new pedestrian stair tower that allows access from Seaboard Avenue.

The *entire* pedestrian bridge and both the north and south end parking lots will be open for the popular Inman Park Festival Friday, April 26 – Sunday, April 28. The contractor’s trailers will remain in the back corner of the north lot for the duration on the project.

Placing the 10th panel

The south bridge and parking lot will close on May 13 so work can begin on that side of the pedestrian bridge and concourse. MARTA will continue to provide bus shuttle service to connect customers from the south end of the station to the north end. The bus shuttle begins at 5 a.m. and arrives every ten-minutes during service hours.

The Inman Park/Reynoldstown rehabilitation is part of MARTA’s commitment to improving rail stations, bus stops and shelters, and adding amenities that enhance the customer experience. The project will be complete by early next year.
