MARTA – Station Rehabilitation Program
Axis Infrastructure was selected by the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) to provide Architectural and Engineering Design Services in support of MARTA’s $300M Station Rehabilitation Program. The 3-5-year term contract features structural, operational, and cosmetic improvements to improve ridership experience.
Axis’ first assignment is the rehabilitation of the Indian Creek Station in DeKalb County. Indian Creek is the Eastern most station on the blue line. Axis led a team of consultants developing scope and associated construction documents repairing and modernizing the station. Highlights of the station improvements include foundation repair of the east platform, platform and concourse deck replacement, structural repairs of the fascia beams, HPL cladding of the interior, architectural lighting, bus loop redesign, parking lot and storm drainage replacement, new parking lot lighting, and HPL cladding and roof replacement of the Police Precinct and Power Station. To improve connectivity to the adjacent neighborhoods, a new center walkway to the south and pedestrian bridge across the MARTA tracks to the north providing connectivity to the neighborhoods were added. The pedestrian bridge is 201’-0” feet with two main Truss span of 94’-6” feet each: one across the MARTA tracks and beginning at the West entrance to the station at an existing wall with an ancillary truss span of 94’-6” and a on grade trail terminating at the northern walkway to Durham Park Road. The bridge consists of a 12-footwide walkway K-truss span at 3.0% longitudinal slope. In addition, a concrete deck and SIP forms with special fencing will be utilized across the entire bridge. All spans are founded on H-piles at the end bents and concrete columns/footings with H-piles for the intermediate piers. The End bent at the west side of the station is a punch through the existing retaining wall while the end bent at Durham is be encompassed with CIP wing walls.
