Work is underway on a renovation of the pedestrian bridges at the Inman Park/Reynoldstown MARTA station. The pedestrian bridge from the DeKalb Avenue side of the station has already closed along with the parking lot and riders are being shuttled to the Seaboard Avenue entrance to access that station. Parking is available on the Seaboard side. Zipcars have been temporarily removed while renovations continue. Renovations are expected to last until Spring 2019 to be followed by work on the Seaboard pedestrian bridge.

The City of Atlanta issued a video report on its cyber infrastructure. Chief Information Officer Gary Brantley discusses the City’s cyber security and the technological infrastructure investments made under Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms since the March cyber attack incident.
