MARTA approved this week a $1.16 billion plan to build 8.8 miles of light rail between its existing Lindbergh Station and Avondale train stops.
Also known as its Clifton Corridor plan, the new rail would service whiz through the Emory area and include stops at Cheshire Bridge, Sage Hill, CDC/Emory Point and Emory-Rollins.
It's a big, juicy, ambitious whopper of a transportation plan, and while MARTA's sign off is significant, this project has quite a few more approvals and hoops to step through before you're standing on a train platform. (Including a regional one-cent sales tax vote July 31 that would cover $700 million of the project's cost.)
MARTA officials said the project may need an additional eight years of testing and planning before construction could begin, assuming everything goes as planned.
