MARTA is hosting open houses on June 25 and 27 to update South DeKalb residents on the I-20 East Transit Initiative.

Participants will get to review the Locally Preferred Alternative (LPA) identified for the corridor. It includes an extension of the existing MARTA rail line from the Indian Creek Station to the Mall at Stonecrest; and new Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service along I-20 between downtown Atlanta and Wesley Chapel Road.

The June 25 meeting takes place at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center, 3181 Rainbow Drive in Decatur. The June 27 takes place at the Lou Walker Center, 2538 Panola Road in Lithonia.

Both meetings begin with a 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. open house, followed by a formal presentation and question and answer session from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
