Next week, MARTA and DeKalb County will host two public open houses about the I-20 East Transit-Oriented Development Strategic Plan, a project that will reshape the popular interstate corridor.

The transit initiative will look at new options for public transportation along a corridor stretching east into DeKalb as far as Stonecrest Mall, Covington Highway and Wesley Chapel Road, according to MARTA.

Additionally, the project could provide opportunities for economic development and revitalization.

The meetings will provide a chance for the community to learn more details about the project and share feedback on preliminary designs.

Both open houses will take place at different times on Tuesday, Aug. 28. The first will be from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Stonecrest Library, 3123 Klondike Rd., Stonecrest, Ga. 30038. The second will last from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Porter Sanford III Performing Arts & Community Center, 3181 Rainbow Dr., Decatur, Ga. 30034.
