Atlanta I-85 collapse: Some MARTA stations run out of parking Monday
First-time MARTA passengers and even some veteran riders experienced another rude aftershock of the I-85 collapse on Monday morning:
No room at the inn. That is, no place to park at MARTA stations.
The enormous parking decks at several stations were filled to or nearing capacity early in the morning rush hour. The problem was particularly acute along the red line, where every spot was taken at the North Springs station by 7:20 a.m. A MARTA employee stood near the entrance to the parking deck of the northernmost stop along the red line and redirected drivers to Sandy Springs and Dunwoody, the next two stations down the line.
By around 8:30 a.m., however, the first five levels at Sandy Springs were full and only about half the spots remained available on the uppermost level.
