They said the long-range plan calls for heavy rail to be extended from the Doraville MARTA station, which is just inside I-285 in DeKalb County, to the site of a future hub near Norcross. The exact site of that hub is still undetermined but officials are targeting the area near Jimmy Carter Boulevard and I-85.
"Heavy rail is very expensive and I think we knew all along that we couldn’t provide to a significant part of the county," Gwinnett Department of Transportation Director Alan Chapman said. "But I think it became apparent to us that it is a needed improvement ... to make a large part of the system work."
