Does MARTA Need to Provide Transit from McGinnis Ferry Road South?
The public is being asked to offer opinions on high-capacity transit that could reach the Forsyth County line in North Fulton at a meeeting in Roswell on Thursday, March 21.
Hoping to get input from the community, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) will host a public meeting on Thursday, March 21, south of Alpharetta and Milton in Roswell to review the Georgia 400 Corridor Transit Initiative.
The GA 400 Corridor Transit Initiative: Alternatives Analysis involves investigating the need for high-capacity transit connections between the Perimeter Center area near the interchange of I-285 and GA 400 in the City of Sandy Springs and McGinnis Ferry Road in northern Fulton County.
The corridor draws commuters from throughout the region, with many commuter trips bound for central Atlanta, Gwinnett, and Cobb counties. "These conditions have created high levels of traffic congestion on GA 400 and the few east-west arterials which cross the expressway," the website says.
During the meeting, the MARTA team will review the current status of the project, discuss the potential transit technologies and offer participants an opportunity to provide input on the alternatives that have moved forward in the analysis process.
The meeting will be held March 21 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at Mimosa Elementary School, located at 1550 Warsaw Road in Roswell.
