Relief Arrives for South Fulton Commuters Through New Park and Ride

ATLANTA (February 21, 2020)  The City of Fairburn in partnership with the South Fulton Community Improvement District (CID) unveils today a 200-space park and ride lot in Fairburn for carpool and vanpool commuters. Located on the southeast side of SR 74, off of exit 61, the park and ride is situated to help alleviate traffic at peak hours along the major artery that connects commuters across several southwestern cities with Atlanta.

The City of Fairburn, local businesses, and the South Fulton CID joined forces to carry out this vital project in advance of the I-85 and SR 74 interchange reconstruction scheduled to begin in 2022. The park and ride is designed to relieve an uptick in congestion anticipated to occur while the reconstruction of the interchange takes place.

“SR 74 is a vital line to Atlanta that experiences tremendous traffic due to the high volume of commuters and trucks who use it each day,” says Joddie Gray, the South Fulton CID Administrator. “To help relieve congestion, we had to act swiftly and bring a solution to the community that eases commute times and provides those who share the ride to work a reliable, convenient place to meet. The park and ride opening marks a major milestone for the community, and its ability to make important projects like this one come to fruition through unified action across our government, local businesses, and the CID.”
