Transit authority files permit for the construction of a new station entrance.
MARTA is adding a “North entrance” to its Buckhead Station.
The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority filed a permit with City of Atlanta Friday to construct a pedestrian bridge over the northbound and southbound lanes of GA 400, in addition to an elevator, “stair tower” and sidewalk, as part of its new North entrance.
MARTA will spend an estimated $18,282,589.00 constructing the new entrance, according to the permit.
Construction on Buckhead Station’s new entrance will begin this fall, according to the Buckhead Community Improvement District (CID). It will open mid-2013.
MARTA was not immediately available for comment.
