East Lake Station Pedestrian Bridge Replacement

Current Status: Construction planned March to September 2024 

As part of MARTA 2040 and its Capital Improvement Program, MARTA will begin deconstruction and replacement of the north pedestrian bridge at East Lake rail station. Once the work is complete, customers will see improved Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility with a new elevator and a cleaner, safer bridge with new flooring, lighting, and paint.  

The work on the north pedestrian bridge is scheduled to begin in March 2024 and conclude in September of that year. The north parking lot at East Lake Station will be closed during construction. Customers must use the south pedestrian bridge and south parking lot.  

The East Lake Station Soccer pitch will remain open with limited parking. There will be occasional road closures on West Howard Avenue during construction. Any road closures will be announced well in advance. Similar work is planned for the south bridge beginning in September 2024. 


  • New elevator on north side of the station and improved parking lot surfaces near entrance
  • Cleaner, safer bridge on north and south side of the station
