Atlanta, Georgia: Advisory panel says highway-capping ‘Stitch’ project could cost $452M

The Stitch plan calls for a massive park to be built above a portion of the interstate between the Civic Center MARTA station and Piedmont Road, which panelists—architects, city planners, transportation experts, and developers—say could pay in tremendous dividends for stakeholders, such as health and wellness benefits.

The “world-class park” that would anchor the development, panelists say, should probably span about five of the 14 acres identified for capping, and it should be one of the first parts of the project addressed.
