The announcement I had previously posted about the East Lake MARTA Station Emergency Response Exercise apparently had the wrong times in it. The event will actually occur overnight tomorrow, NOT during the day as originally reported. Here’s the correct info straight from the Decatur Minute…
On November 20th and 21st between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. the Decatur Police and Fire Departments will be assisting MARTA with an emergency preparedness exercise at the East Lake MARTA station. The following streets will be closed during the exercise:
-West Howard Avenue between Adair Street and Ridgecrest Avenue
-Paden Circle between East Lake Drive and West Howard Avenue
Residents along West Howard Avenue will be allowed westbound access, but may travel no further on West Howard Avenue than Chief Matthews Road. If you have any questions, please contact Deputy Police Chief J.K. Lee at (678) 553-6620 or [email protected] You can also find out more information by visting MARTA’s website.
From other reports I’ve read, the station will also be closed during these hours as well.
