Many oppose expansion at MARTA meeting

Posted: Updated:
ALPHARETTA, Ga. -

Alpharetta residents attended a meeting Tuesday night regarding a proposal from MARTA to expand up the 400 corridor.

The meeting was held to discuss relief alternatives for high-capacity transit from North Springs to Windward Parkway.

The meeting took place at the Johns Creek Environmental Campus.

A dozen-mile MARTA northward expansion sound like a good idea to some in Alpharetta, but the expansion isn’t sitting well with some residents whose neighborhood would be affected.

“If the distance is further North with more stops, how will that possibly improve that experience of commuting,” said Peter Radike who opposes the expansion.

MARTA tells FOX 5 they will have a few more public hearings; however, if all goes it could be a decade or longer before the expansion would be built.
