Description: 

The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) proposes to extend its heavy rail service from the existing North Springs Station Northward to Windward Parkway in northern Fulton County primarily within the GA-400 right-of-way. The proposed project would connect the cities of Sandy Springs and Alpharetta to the existing north-south rail service (Red Line). Given that northern Fulton County is projected to experience substantial growth in employment opportunities and population, traffic congestion is anticipated to intensify in the study area through 2040 and beyond. This trend is expected to have a negative impact on the quality of life for commuters and residents and would likely hinder economic development opportunities unless improved transportation services are provided.

FTA and MARTA rescinded their March 31, 2015 Notice of Intent for an EIS in the Federal Register on July 24, 2019 for the GA 400 Transit Initiative in Fulton County Georgia. The project is therefore canceled.
