The Clifton Corridor Alternatives Analysis involves investigating the need for high-capacity transit connections between the Lindbergh Center area in north-central Atlanta to the Clifton Road employment centers and the City of Decatur in west-central DeKalb County. The Clifton Corridor includes some of the largest activity centers in metro Atlanta without convenient access to the interstate system or MARTA rail connections. These conditions have created high levels of traffic congestion on a severely limited network of roadways. The corridor is home to a number of well established residential communities and several major employers such as Emory University, Emory Healthcare, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Veterans Administration Medical Center & Regional Offices, and the DeKalb Medical Center.
The final public open house for this effort will be held at the Silver Bell Pavilion at the Emory Conference Center Hotel on October 25th from 5:30 to 8:30 PM. A formal presentation will begin at 6 PM. For more information, visit MARTA’s Clifton Corridor Transit Initiative homepage or Facebook page.
